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.

    I would recommend Crown Home Inspections to anyone looking for a thorough home inspection. We were assigned two gentlemen both by the name of Travis (one who did our thorough home inspection and the other who completed our sewer scope). … More Both were prompt, professional and courteous and both took the time to explain their findings and answer all questions to ensure we understood. We were very pleased with both of them. Thank you Crown Home Inspections!

    I liked this inspector. Although I never met him, it sounded like he was very helpful for my agent understanding what may be wrong in my soon to be new house. I am 2 states away and unfortunately am too busy at the moment to make it. He … More caught quite a few more faults than a previous buyer’s inspector caught in the span of a month. Some of the paperwork was a little hard to understand the faults, but had I been there, I could have questioned what those faults meant. I don’t blame the inspector, that is my fault. This is why it is important for someone to be present at their prospective home’s inspection. All in all, I am happy with their services. I give him an A!
