Radon Testing for Fairchild AFB WA

Fairchild AFB WA Radon Testing

What is Radon Gas?

Radon is a common carcinogen. Radon gas is known to lead to lung cancer in people.

38%+ of houses in the Fairchild AFB WA area have a radon gas saturation higher than the actionable amount.

Radon seeps out of the topsoil, not the house. No property, new or old, is immune to radon gas intrusion.

Every house meshes with the topsoil underneath it differently. That is part of the reason why houses next to others have significantly different radon saturation.

Radon accumulation will shift every day and monthly inside a reasonable range. A quick radon sample measures a single day or week and a good bellwether of whether or not the property has a radon accumulation.

Radon has a half-life of about half a week. radon gas levels will not be worse if the home is closed for years or months.

How Does Radon Gas Penetrate your home?

Surprisingly, homes are not draft-proof.

Gas can enter through any ground-facing gap in the home such as sump drains, plumbing, and invisible flaws in the foundation.

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

Your Radon Test Method

Inspecting a house for radon is an important process when completing a house purchase.

The radon gas expert will place the radon gas monitors in the structure. Radon gas detectors will be located on any level that touches the ground. It is typical that up to three devices are located in the property for the radon gas measurement.

Your radon professional will shut every window, close the vent on the chimney, and make sure the heater or AC is running in the standard manner. Our radon specialist will additionally seal every necessary window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that draft standards are met.

The radon gas devices are left on the property for a few days recording the levels of radon gas in the property. A technician will return to the home once the radon testing is completed to remove the monitors and write 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.
