Radon Testing for Fairwood WA

Fairwood WA Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring cause of cancer. It is known to instigate lung cancer in humans.

A large number of houses in the Fairwood WA area have a radon level higher than the actionable amount.

Radon comes from the topsoil, not the structure. No structure, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon gas contamination.

Each home interacts with the topsoil differently. This is part of the reason why homes adjacent to each other can have dramatically different radon concentrations.

Radon gas accumulation will change every day and seasonally within a reasonable range. A short-term radon gas sample is a snapshot and a reliable bellwether of whether or not the property has a radon gas accumulation.

Radon has a half-life of only days. As such, radon accumulation won’t be higher if the house is sealed for years or months.

How Does Radon Gas Infiltrate your structure?

Surprisingly, homes are not completely airtight.

Vapors will enter through each grounded vent in the building such as sump pits, plumbing, and even minor cracks in the foundation’s concrete.

The method to know with confidence the accumulation of radon gas in the property is to run a radon test.

Radon Testing Procedure

Measuring a dwelling for radon gas is an important procedure when done with a property purchase.

Your radon gas expert will position the radon gas detectors in the structure. Radon analyzers are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. Normally a few monitors are installed in the house for the radon gas analysis.

Your radon gas professional will shut every window, shut the flue on the fireplace, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the prescribed manner. Our radon gas expert will also seal any required window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that draft conditions are maintained.

The radon gas probes remain in the property for two or three days recording the prevalence of radon gas in the house. An expert will return to the structure once the radon measurement is finished to return 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.
