Overland Park Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon Gas?

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

A large number of properties in the Overland Park area have a radon saturation at or above the DNS action limit.

Radon gas comes from the dirt, not the home. No structure, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon infiltration.

Every home interfaces with the dirt underneath it in a different manner. That is why houses adjoining others often have majorly different radon accumulation.

Radon saturation will rise or fall every day and monthly within an acceptable range. Short-term radon measurement is a snapshot and a reliable metric of whether or not the home has radon contamination.

Radon has a dangerous duration of about half a week. radon gas levels won’t be worse if the home is sealed for months or years.

How Does Radon Gas Filter into your house?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not airtight.

Vapors may enter through every penetration in the structure such as sump pumps, plumbing pipes, and minor imperfections in the concrete work.

The way to know certainly the accumulation of radon gas in the property is to run a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Testing Method

Inspecting a property for radon gas is an important service when done as a part of a real estate sale.

A radon gas specialist will place the radon analyzers in the dwelling. Radon analyzers will be installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. It is typical that between 1 and 3 monitors are installed in the structure for the radon gas test.

Our radon gas technician will seal every window, close the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the HVAC system is operating in the required manner. Your Overland Park radon gas professional will additionally seal all indicated windows with tamper-proof tape to confirm that closed-house requirements are upheld.

The radon gas monitors are stored in the property for 2-3 days to analyze the prevalence of radon gas in the building. An expert will return to the structure once the radon testing is completed to remove the analyzers 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.
