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.

    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!!
