Merriam KS Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a common carcinogen. Radon gas is well known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.

Many properties in the Merriam KS area have a radon level at or above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon gas seeps out of the dirt, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon contamination.

Each and every home interacts with the dirt beneath it uniquely. That is why properties next door to one another may have dramatically different radon gas levels.

Radon accumulation will change daily and monthly inside of a normal range. A short-term radon measurement measures a small time period and a solid bellwether of whether or not the home has a radon saturation.

Radon has a lifespan of only days. That means that radon concentration won’t be worse if the property is enclosed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Seep into the Home?

No home is 100% gas-proof.

Vapors may seep in through every ground-facing gap in the property such as drainage, utility connections, and slight flaws in the foundation.

Your method to know with confidence the levels of radon in the structure is to contract a radon test.

Radon Test Procedures

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

Your radon professional will position the radon analyzers in the structure. Radon gas analyzers will be situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. For most properties, multiple monitors are located in the home for the radon test.

Our radon professional will close all windows, close the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the air conditioning is running in the standard manner. The radon gas expert will also mark every necessary window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that closed home requirements are maintained.

The radon gas devices remain in the structure for two or three days measuring the saturation of radon gas in the property. An expert will revisit the property after the radon test is finished to remove the devices and create a report.

    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!
