Radon Testing for Kellogg ID

Kellogg ID Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. It is well known to lead to lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of homes in the Kellogg ID area have a radon gas saturation above the carcinogenic level.

Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the house. No home- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon gas.

Each and every home meshes with the topsoil differently. This is why homes next to one another can have radically different radon saturation.

Radon gas concentration will change every day and monthly inside of a reasonable range. A one-time radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and a dependable bellwether of if the property has radon gas contamination.

Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. As such, radon levels will not be any greater if the home is sealed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Infiltrate a Structure?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not completely gas-proof.

Radon can enter through every ground-facing gap in the structure such as drainage, utility connections, and even small cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.

The way to know confidently the concentration of radon gas in the house is to have a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Testing Procedure

Inspecting a home for radon gas is a unique process when completed as a part of a property transaction.

A radon gas expert will install the radon analyzers in the dwelling. Radon gas probes will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. It is typical that between 1 and 3 analyzers are installed in the property for the radon analysis.

Our radon technician will shut every window, shut the flue on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is operating in the required manner. The radon gas technician will also treat any indicated window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home conditions are upheld.

The radon devices are left in the home for two or three days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the home. A professional will return to the building after the radon measurement is done to take the monitors and write a report.

Please call today for a zero-cost price estimate! Our radon testing consultants will come out to ask about your property, measure the area, and get you on target on making your Kellogg ID home 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.
