Mission KS Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon Gas?

Radon is a dangerous cause of cancer. It is proven to cause lung cancer in humans.

Many properties in the Mission KS area have a radon concentration higher than the actionable level.

Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the house. No structure, new or old, is immune to radon gas.

Each property interacts with the ground in a different manner. That is why houses adjoining each other have dramatically different radon concentrations.

Radon levels will rise or fall on different days and monthly within a safe range. A one-time radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable indicator of whether or not the structure has radon contamination.

Radon gas has a half-life of only days. As such, radon gas levels will not be greater if the home is enclosed for years or months.

How Does Radon Seep into a dwelling?

Houses are not supposed to be completely airtight.

Gas will seep in through each ground-facing gap in the home such as drainage, pipes, and minor cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.

The way to know with certainty the accumulation of radon in the dwelling is to order a radon test.

Radon Test Steps

Sampling a home for radon gas is a special process when delivering a house sale.

Your radon professional will position the radon gas detectors on the property. Radon monitors are dropped off in crawl spaces and on the first floor. For most properties between 1 and 3 probes are located in the property for the radon measurement.

Your radon technician will close every window, close the damper on the chimney, and confirm the heater or AC is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon specialist will additionally treat all indicated windows with anti-tampering tape to confirm that ventilation requirements are maintained.

The radon gas monitors are left in the property for two or three days to measure the prevalence of radon gas in the structure. A professional will return to the home after the radon testing is done to remove the monitors and write a report.
