Lee’s Summit Radon Testing

What’s Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.

Many homes in the Lee’s Summit area have a radon gas concentration near or above the actionable level.

Radon filters out of the silt, not the building. No house, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas.

Every home interacts with the dirt differently. That is why homes adjacent to one another may have significantly different radon gas saturation.

Radon gas concentration will change every day and seasonally within a reasonable range. A one-time radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable metric of if the home has a radon issue.

Radon has a dangerous duration of 3.8 days. That means radon gas accumulation won’t be any higher if the house is sealed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Filter into your structure?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not gas-proof.

Gas will enter through each penetration in the property such as sump pumps, plumbing, and small cracks in the concrete work.

The method to know with confidence the accumulation of radon in the abode is to run a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Test Procedure

Probing a house for radon is a special process when delivering a property transaction.

Our radon gas professional will situate the radon gas detectors on the property. Radon gas probes will be dropped off in crawl spaces and on the first floor. On average several analyzers are located in the house for the radon gas test.

Your radon gas professional will shut windows, seal the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heater or AC is functioning in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas expert will also treat all indicated windows with anti-tampering tape to make sure that ventilation requirements are maintained.

The radon devices remain in the structure for a few days measuring the prevalence of radon gas in the home. A technician will revisit the home after the radon measurement is done to recover the monitors and write a report.

Call us today for a no-pressure pricing estimate! 

Our radon testing consultants will come out to hear about your property, measure the area, and get you on target on making your Lee’s Summit property one you can enjoy completely!

    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!
