Prairie Village KS Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon is a dangerous carcinogen. It is known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.

Many houses in the Prairie Village KS area have a radon saturation at or above the actionable limit.

Radon gas seeps out of the soil, not the house. No property, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon gas infiltration.

Every home interfaces with the topsoil beneath it differently. That is part of the reason why houses adjoining one another may have significantly different radon gas concentrations.

Radon gas levels will fluctuate daily and with the seasons inside an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas test measures a small period and is an accurate metric of whether or not the structure has a radon gas problem.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. Accordingly, radon levels will not be worse if the house is closed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Enter the Home?

No dwelling is entirely sealed.

Vapors can infiltrate through every ground-facing gap in the structure such as drains, plumbing pipes, and even minor flaws in the concrete foundation.

Your way to know with confidence the levels of radon gas in the property is to run a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Test Procedures

Inspecting a house for radon gas is an important service when delivering a house sale.

A radon expert will install the radon gas monitors in the home. Radon gas probes are located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally up to three probes are located in the home for the radon analysis.

The radon expert will shut every window and door, seal the vent on the fireplace, and confirm the heater or AC is operating in the standard manner. Your radon technician will additionally treat every indicated window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed-house standards are met.

The radon gas apparatus is stored in the structure for a few days to measure the amount of radon gas in the building. A specialist will revisit the house after the radon measurement is complete to take the probes and create a report.

Please call today at 913-653-0996 for a no-pressure consultation! Our radon testing staff will come to visit to hear about your property, measure your space, and get you started on making your Prairie Village KS home one you can be proud of!

    We are purchasing a new home and wanted a professional inspection prior to closing. We chose Crown because they did the inspection on the home we sold and did an excellent job for the new owner. The inspector provided an explanation to … More us of anything that may need attention and sent the recommendations with pictures very quickly. We highly recommend Crown Home Inspections.

    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.
