Radon Testing in Grangeville ID

Grangeville ID Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon Gas?

Radon is a dangerous cause of cancer. It is well known to cause lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of properties in the Grangeville ID area have a radon level above the DNS action limit.

Radon gas naturally occurs in the silt, not the building. No home, new or old, is immune to radon contamination.

Every property interacts with the soil underneath it differently. That is why homes next door to each other have majorly different radon gas accumulation.

Radon gas levels will shift daily and monthly inside of an acceptable range. A quick radon gas sample measures a small period and is a reliable indicator of whether the house has radon contamination.

Radon gas has a lifespan of only a few days. As such, radon concentration won’t be greater if the house is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Penetrate the Structure?

Houses are not supposed to be entirely hermetically sealed.

Radon can enter through every grounded vent in the structure such as drains, plumbing pipes, and invisible gaps in the concrete work.

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

Radon Testing Procedures

Probing a property for radon is a special service when delivered with a real estate sale.

Your radon professional will position the radon gas analyzers in the dwelling. Radon gas analyzers will be installed on any level that touches the ground. It is typical that up to three devices are left in the home for the radon measurement.

Our radon gas professional will seal every window, close the flue on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is operating in the standard manner. The radon professional will additionally mark any required window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that ventilation conditions are upheld.

The radon gas probes remain in the structure for several days recording the prevalence of radon gas in the structure. A professional will revisit the home once the radon test is complete to recover the probes 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.
