Radon Testing, Lewistown ID

Lewistown ID Radon Test

What is Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cause of cancer. Radon is known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of homes in the Lewistown ID area have a radon level at or above the DNS action amount.

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

Each property meshes with the soil underneath it differently. This is why houses adjoining others often have significantly different radon gas accumulation.

Radon accumulation will change daily and monthly inside of a normal range. A one-time radon gas test measures a single day or week and a solid bellwether of whether the structure has a radon problem.

Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. Accordingly, radon levels won’t be higher if the structure is enclosed for years or months.

How Does Radon Gas Seep into a Home?

Houses are not built to be 100% gas-proof.

Radon gas will enter through each grounded vent in the property such as sump drains, pipeworks, and minor flaws in the foundation’s concrete.

The technique to know with certainty the levels of radon gas in the property is to order a radon test.

Radon Test Procedures

Sampling a home for radon is an important service when done concurrently with a real estate transaction.

Our radon expert will position the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon analyzers will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. On average, between 1 and 3 devices are left in the house for the radon test.

The radon technician will seal every window, close the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is running in the standard manner. Your radon professional will also mark every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to maintain closed-house requirements.

The radon probes remain in the home for several days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the building. A technician will revisit the building once the radon measurement is finished to recover 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.
