Shawnee Radon Testing

What is Radon?

Radon gas is a dangerous cancer-causing agent. Radon is known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.

A large number of properties in the Shawnee area have a radon saturation above the dangerous level.

Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the house. No property, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon gas contamination.

Every home meshes with the soil beneath it differently. This is part of the reason why properties next door to one another can have significantly different radon concentrations.

Radon saturation will shift on different days and seasonally inside a normal range. A one-time radon sample is a snapshot and a reliable bellwether of if the land has a radon gas accumulation.

Radon has a half-life of only a few days. Accordingly, radon levels will not be any higher if the home is enclosed for months or years.

How Does Radon Gas Penetrate your property?

No property is entirely draft-proof.

Radon will infiltrate through each penetration in the property such as sump drains, pipeworks, and invisible cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.

The way to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the abode is to contract a radon test.

Radon Test Steps

Sampling a home for radon is a unique process when offered alongside a real estate transaction.

The radon specialist will situate the radon analyzers in the house. Radon detectors will be installed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties between one and three devices are located in the house for the radon gas testing.

The radon gas technician will shut every window, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the HVAC system is functioning in the required manner. The radon professional will also treat any indicated window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that ventilation standards are maintained.

The radon monitors remain in the building for two or three days to record the amount of radon gas in the home. An expert will come back to the home once the radon test is done to remove the probes and generate 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.
