Coeur d’Alene Radon Testing

What to Know About Radon?

Radon gas is a common-place carcinogen. It is proven to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of homes in the Coeur d’Alene Radon Testing area have a radon saturation near or above the actionable amount.

Radon gas comes from the topsoil, not the structure. No property, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon gas intrusion.

Every house interacts with the dirt beneath it differently. That is why properties next to one another have significantly different radon gas levels.

Radon saturation will fluctuate on different days and monthly within a acceptable range. A short-term radon measurement measures a single day or week and a accurate metric of if the house has a radon issue.

Radon has a lifespan of about half of a week. That means that radon gas saturation will not be any higher if the property is closed for years or months.

How Does Radon Enter a house?

No home is entirely hermetically sealed.

Radon gas may seep in through every ground-facing gap in the building such as sump drains, pipes, and minor flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.

Your way to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the dwelling is to order a radon test.

Your Radon Testing Procedure

Testing a house for radon gas is a special process when completed alongside a property transaction.

Our radon gas expert will place the radon analyzers in the property. Radon gas analyzers will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching earth. It is typical that a few monitors are placed in the house for the radon testing.

Our radon technician will close windows, shut the vent on the chimney, and make sure the heating and cooling system is running in the required manner. Your radon expert will additionally mark every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed home conditions are maintained.

The radon gas apparatus stay in the house for a few days to record the saturation of radon gas in the home. A technician will come back to the structure once the radon measurement is complete to take the devices and create 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.
