Kansas City MO Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon?

Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon is proven to cause lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of homes in the Kansas City MO area have a radon gas level at or above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon filters out of the silt, not the structure. No home, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon intrusion.

Every home interacts with the dirt beneath it in a different manner. That is why properties next to one another often have dramatically different radon gas accumulation.

Radon saturation will change on different days and with the seasons inside of a reasonable range. A short-term radon gas test measures a small time period and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the house has a radon contamination.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only days. As such, radon gas concentration will not be greater if the house is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Filter into a Structure?

Houses are not built to be 100% hermetically sealed.

Radon will infiltrate through any penetration in the home such as sump pumps, plumbing, and slight cracks in the concrete foundation.

The way to know certainly the concentration of radon gas in the home is to order a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Testing Procedures

Measuring a dwelling for radon is a special service when done concurrently with a property transaction.

Our radon gas technician will place the radon gas probes on the property. Radon detectors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally a few devices are left in the home for the radon analysis.

Your radon expert will close every window and door, close the vent on the fireplace, and ensure the HVAC system is running in the required manner. Your radon specialist will additionally treat every necessary window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home conditions are met.

The radon probes stay in the home for two or three days to analyze the prevalence of radon gas in the building. An expert will come back to the property after the radon test is complete to remove the devices and generate a report.

    After searching for a reliable and professional mold testing company that provides air sampling, I made numerous calls and did a lot of comparisons based on Google ratings. It was through a recommendation from PureClean, a company that … More does not offer air sampling, that I found Crown Home Inspection. They came highly recommended. After contacting them and comparing their services with other companies, it became clear that Crown Home Inspection has an exceptionally professional, trustworthy, and honest team. They patiently answered all my questions over the phone. The inspector John was knowledgeable and professional, and also flexible enough to accommodate my schedule, which I greatly appreciated. I highly recommend them.

The outsource services of chimney and sewer were also very great. We felt very informed.
