Leawood KS Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a naturally occuring cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of homes in the Leawood KS area have a radon gas level near or above the actionable limit.

Radon seeps out of the dirt, not the building. No property- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon infiltration.

Every home interfaces with the soil beneath it differently. That is part of the reason why houses next to each other have majorly different radon gas saturation.

Radon levels will shift daily and seasonally inside of a normal range. A short-term radon gas test measures a single day or week and a good bellweather of if the home has a radon issue.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only a few days. As such, radon gas concentration won’t be worse if the structure is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Infiltrate your house?

No dwelling is entirely sealed.

Vapors will infiltrate through every penetration in the structure such as sump pumps, utility connections, and even minor cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.

Your method to know certainly the concentration of radon gas in the structure is to run a radon test.

Our Radon Testing Method

Sampling a dwelling for radon gas is a special process when offered alongside a house transaction.

Our radon technician will position the radon gas analyzers in the home. Radon detectors are situated on any level that touches the ground. Normally multiple monitors are placed in the house for the radon testing.

The radon gas expert will shut windows, shut the vent on the chimney, and confirm the HVAC system is running in the standard manner. The radon expert will also mark any required window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that draft standards are upheld.

The radon probes are left in the building for several days measuring the amount of radon gas in the property. A specialist will revisit the building once the radon test is complete to take the analyzers and generate a report.

Please call today for a no-pressure price estimate! Our radon testing staff will meet with you to hear about your property, measure the area, and get you on target on making your Leawood KS house one you can enjoy completely!

    Travis conducted a home inspection for my buyer client in Lee’s Summit and I am very pleased. This was my first time hiring Crown Home Inspections. He was professional, courteous, and personable despite it was over 104 degrees outside on … More a Friday afternoon! The inspection was thorough and he communicated with me throughout the process. Since my client was in CA, he zoomed with her at the end to provide a summary and answer her questions. The report gave both the client and myself a great understanding of the home. I will hire Crown again to conduct my inspections.

    Zach did a great job inspecting my new home! Extremely thorough and I felt like I was able to prioritize immediate work v later/cosmetic! All recommendations were clearly laid out to myself and my agent. Would recommend again!

    The experience was very simplistic. Our guy was EXTREMELY kind and informative. Being first time home owners is hard enough, so we are so glad that we knew what needed to be handled by the sellers and what we (personally) needed to do. … More Eye contact was appreciated. I didn't feel like he missed anything, and I would have him come again in the future whenever we decide to sell. Thank you guys so much!!
