Radon Testing for Buckeye WA

Buckeye WA Radon Testing

What is Radon?

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

38%+ of houses in the Buckeye WA area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable limit.

Radon gas filters out of the dirt, not the house. No home, new or old, is exempt from radon gas contamination.

Every property meshes with the soil in a different manner. That is why properties adjacent to one another may have significantly different radon saturation.

Radon gas levels will rise or fall daily and seasonally within an acceptable range. A quick radon gas test measures a small time period and is an accurate indicator of whether or not the house has a radon issue.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. This means that radon accumulation won’t be worse if the home is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Seep into the Property?

Houses are not supposed to be absolutely hermetically sealed.

Gas may infiltrate through every grounded vent in the property such as drains, utility connections, and invisible flaws in the foundation’s concrete.

The method to know with certainty the levels of radon in the abode is to contract a radon test.

Radon Testing Procedure

Testing a house for radon gas is an important procedure when done concurrently with a house transaction.

Your radon gas expert will install the radon gas probes in the home. Radon monitors will be installed on any level that touches the ground. On average between 1 and 3 probes are located in the structure for the radon measurement.

The radon gas technician will seal all windows, shut the vent on the fireplace, and confirm the heater or AC is operating in the prescribed manner. Our radon gas specialist will additionally treat all required windows with anti-tampering tape to confirm that draft requirements are maintained.

The radon monitors are left in the home for several days to analyze the levels of radon gas in the house. A specialist will return to the structure after the radon measurement is done to remove the devices and generate a report.

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.
