Hamilton ID Radon Test

What to Know About Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

A large number of homes in the Hamilton ID area have a radon gas level higher than the DNS action amount.

Radon gas naturally occurs in the dirt, not the building. No home, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon.

Every property interacts with the topsoil beneath it differently. This is part of the reason why properties next door to one another have radically different radon concentrations.

Radon levels will fluctuate on different days and with the seasons inside a normal range. A quick radon sample measures a small period and is a solid indicator of whether the home has radon contamination.

Radon has a lifespan of about half a week. That means radon saturation will not be higher if the structure is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Filter into a Home?

No house is 100% hermetically sealed.

Radon may seep in through each grounded vent in the house such as sump pits, pipeworks, and small flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.

The method to know with confidence the accumulation of radon in the house is to have a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Testing Procedure

Probing a dwelling for radon gas is a special service when completed as a part of a house sale.

The radon gas expert will situate the radon monitors in the structure. Radon analyzers will be placed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically, several monitors are placed in the structure for the radon gas test.

Our radon technician will seal all windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and confirm the HVAC system is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon technician will additionally seal every required window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that ventilation conditions are met.

The radon devices are stored in the building for 2-3 days measuring the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A technician will come back to the property after the radon test is complete to take the devices and generate a report.

Please call today at 208-701-6503 for a no-pressure consultation! Our radon testing staff will come out to learn more about your property, measure your space, and get you started on making your Hamilton ID house one you can be proud of!

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.
