Grandview Radon Testing

What’s Radon?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is well known to instigate lung cancer in humans.

A large number of properties in the Grandview area have a radon level near or above the DNS action level.

Radon gas comes from the topsoil, not the building. No property, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon contamination.

Each property interacts with the soil underneath it uniquely. This is part of the reason why houses adjacent to one another may have radically different radon gas levels.

Radon accumulation will rise or fall every day and with the seasons inside a reasonable range. A quick radon gas sample is a snapshot and an accurate indicator of whether or not the home has a radon gas issue.

Radon has a lifespan of only days. This means that radon saturation will not be any higher if the property is enclosed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Seep into a Home?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not entirely airtight.

Radon gas can infiltrate through any ground-facing gap in the home such as sump drains, pipeworks, and invisible flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.

Your method to know with certainty the accumulation of radon in the structure is to have a radon test.

Your Radon Testing Procedure

Testing a home for radon is an important service when completed with a real estate transaction.

The radon specialist will position the radon monitors in the structure. Radon gas analyzers will be located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. For most properties, multiple probes are located in the home for radon gas testing.

Our radon expert will shut every window and door, seal the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is operating in the required manner. The radon expert will additionally treat any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed-home requirements are met.

The radon devices are left in the property for 2-3 days to record the prevalence of radon gas in the house. A professional will revisit the building once the radon test is completed to take the monitors and generate a report.

Call us today for a no-cost pricing estimate! Our radon testing experts will meet with you to hear about your property, take measurements, and get you on target on making your Grandview home one you can be proud of!

    We are big fans of the Crown Home Inspections! We know that when our clients choose to use them, their report will be thorough and explained in a digestible manner. Something that makes Crown extra special is that they take the time to … More print off a copy of their report on site. This helps us to ensure our clients are hearing all the intricate details in person during the summary so they don’t come up later when they review on their own, without the inspectors explanation. On top of this, they are prompt, professional, friendly and orchestrate additional inspections to help everything run smoothly. Highly recommend!
