Merriam KS Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a common carcinogen. Radon gas is well known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.

Many properties in the Merriam KS area have a radon level at or above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon gas seeps out of the dirt, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon contamination.

Each and every home interacts with the dirt beneath it uniquely. That is why properties next door to one another may have dramatically different radon gas levels.

Radon accumulation will change daily and monthly inside of a normal range. A short-term radon measurement measures a small time period and a solid bellwether of whether or not the home has a radon saturation.

Radon has a lifespan of only days. That means that radon concentration won’t be worse if the property is enclosed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Seep into the Home?

No home is 100% gas-proof.

Vapors may seep in through every ground-facing gap in the property such as drainage, utility connections, and slight flaws in the foundation.

Your method to know with confidence the levels of radon in the structure is to contract a radon test.

Radon Test Procedures

Probing a property for radon gas is a special process when doing a house transaction.

Your radon professional will position the radon analyzers in the structure. Radon gas analyzers will be situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. For most properties, multiple monitors are located in the home for the radon test.

Our radon professional will close all windows, close the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the air conditioning is running in the standard manner. The radon gas expert will also mark every necessary window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that closed home requirements are maintained.

The radon gas devices remain in the structure for two or three days measuring the saturation of radon gas in the property. An expert will revisit the property after the radon test is finished to remove the devices and create a report.

Please call today at 913-653-0996 for a no-cost price estimate! Our radon testing consultants will come to visit to hear about your property, take measurements, and get you started on making your Merriam KS home one you can enjoy completely!

    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.

    Travis did a great job easing our minds–he went through every single point and answered our questions. He was great with us as first time homebuyers and the ability to schedule with one service that also scheduled chimney and sewer was … More very helpful. The outsource services of chimney and sewer were also very great. We felt very informed.
