Mission Hills KS Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a dangerous cause of cancer. Radon is proven to instigate lung cancer in people.

Many houses in the Mission Hills KS area have a radon gas level higher than the carcinogenic limit.

Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon intrusion.

Each home interfaces with the ground underneath it in a different way. That is part of the reason why houses next door to each other often have dramatically different radon gas levels.

Radon gas saturation will rise or fall every day and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A quick radon gas sample measures a single day or week and is a dependable indicator of whether or not the land has a radon accumulation.

Radon has a dangerous duration of about half of a week. That means that radon gas accumulation won’t be higher if the structure is sealed for months or years.

How Does Radon Enter your home?

Surprisingly, homes are not totally sealed.

Gas may seep in through every penetration in the structure such as sump pumps, pipes, and slight gaps in the concrete foundation.

Your method to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the structure is to run a radon test.

Our Radon Testing Procedure

Testing a house for radon gas is an important procedure when delivered with a real estate purchase.

A radon professional will situate the radon gas detectors in the home. Radon gas analyzers will be installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. It is typical that multiple probes are placed in the structure for the radon test.

Your radon technician will shut every window, seal the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the heating and cooling system is operating in the standard manner. Our radon technician will additionally seal all necessary windows with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed-house standards are met.

The radon gas monitors stay in the building for 2-3 days analyzing the amount of radon gas in the house. A specialist will return to the building once the radon test is done to recover the monitors and write a report.
