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 provided an exceptional service while inspecting the home I recently purchased. He was thorough, timely and knowledgeable as he reviewed all accessible areas of the home inside and out. Travis presented his inspection results in … More an easy to follow and understandable way while suggesting I first prioritize the needed repairs related to safety. He answered my questions and walked me through the explanations with pictures and/or at the area in question. The hard copy and electronic reports will come in handy as I address the needed repairs. Travis was confident, well spoken and relatable, making it comfortable for me to interact with and rely on him.

    Our inspection process with Crown Home Inspections was flawless. I am so grateful for Travis and his calm and professional demeanor. Our inspection came back horrible, but save us from buying a home that needed 50K worth of work. He was … More so thorough, but also very thoughtful on how he presented it to us. Definitely would recommend them!

    Travis did a great job easing our minds–he went through every single point and answered our questions. He was great with us as first time homebuyers and the ability to schedule with one service that also scheduled chimney and sewer was … More very helpful. The outsource services of chimney and sewer were also very great. We felt very informed.
