Radon Testing in Four Lakes WA

Four Lakes WA Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon is a common cancer-causing agent. Radon is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.

Many homes in the Four Lakes WA area have a radon gas level at or above the DNS action level.

Radon comes from the silt, not the structure. No property- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon gas infiltration.

Every home interacts with the ground beneath it differently. This is why properties next to each other may have majorly different radon gas accumulation.

Radon gas levels will rise or fall every day and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A one-time radon sample measures a small period and is an accurate indicator of whether or not the land has a radon problem.

Radon has a lifespan of 3.8 days. As such, radon levels won’t be greater if the home is enclosed for years or months.

How Does Radon Gas Infiltrate your home?

No dwelling is entirely draft-proof.

Vapors will infiltrate through each penetration in the home such as sump pumps, plumbing pipes, and small cracks in the concrete foundation.

The technique to know confidently the accumulation of radon in the property is to order a radon test.

Radon Gas Test Procedures

Sampling a property for radon is a unique procedure when delivered as a part of a house transaction.

A radon gas specialist will install the radon gas detectors on the property. Radon gas analyzers are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. Normally up to three monitors are left on the property for the radon gas analysis.

The radon specialist will shut all windows, shut the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the HVAC system is operating in the required manner. Our radon gas specialist will additionally treat all necessary windows with tamper indication tape to make sure that draft conditions are met.

The radon gas probes are left in the building for a few days measuring the amount of radon gas in the property. A technician will revisit the structure after the radon test is done to recover the monitors 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.
