Athol ID Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon is a dangerous carcinogen. Radon gas is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of properties in the Athol ID area have a radon concentration near or above the dangerous level.

Radon filters out of the dirt, not the structure. No structure- new or old – is fully shielded from radon intrusion.

Every property interacts with the soil beneath it in a different manner. That is why properties next to one another may have significantly different radon gas concentrations.

Radon gas concentration will fluctuate on different days and monthly inside of a reasonable range. A short-term radon gas test measures a small period and a solid metric of whether or not the house has a radon gas saturation.

Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. radon gas accumulation will not be higher if the structure is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Enter a property?

Houses are not built to be airtight.

Vapors can seep in through every ground-facing gap in the house such as drainage, plumbing, and even small cracks in the foundation.

Your method to know with certainty the accumulation of radon gas in the house is to order a radon test.

Your Radon Test Steps

Probing a home for radon gas is a special procedure when done with a house purchase.

Best Inspections USA is my new go to for home inspections. Professional, knowledgeable, and clearly an expert, Bobby sets the standard for all other inspection companies to emulate. I have used two other local inspectors before meeting Bobby, and his attention to detail and experience really stood out above and beyond the others. I am very confident to refer Bobby and his staff to all my family and friends that need residential or new construction inspections.

Bobby was incredibly professional and informative. We had to rush an inspection and they were able to squeeze us in the next morning (which none of the other inspection companies were able to do!) We are first time home buyers and had lots of questions which Bobby was able to answer. He made the house buying process much less worrying due to his detailed report! I HIGHLY recommend this company!

Bobby is a real Professional! I wouldn't trust anyone else to do a home inspection for me. His years of experience and knowledge far surpass the average inspector, who may have little to no experience in the industry. Bobby's many years in the construction business make working with him invaluable.
