Radon is an invisible and odorless radioactive, cancer-causing gas that occurs naturally from decaying uranium underneath the earth’s surface. Though you cannot see, smell, or taste radon, the gas rises through the soil and seeps through cracks, holes, and drain pipes in the foundation or basements of buildings. Radon gas can be found all over the United States, and approximately 42% of the homes in the greater Kansas City area have high levels of radon.
High levels of radon can be remedied through radon remediation specialists so if your home does measure for high levels, not all is lost.
At Crown Home Inspections, we use state-of-the-art electronic continuous monitors. These monitors take readings of the radon levels in the home every hour throughout the 48-hour test. Your results are IMMEDIATELY available at the conclusion of the test allowing you to make decisions if radon remediation is necessary.
Crown Home Inspections is certified by the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) to provide accurate radon measurements.
