Radon Testing for Liberty Lake

Liberty Lake Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.

Many houses in the Liberty Lake area have a radon gas level at or above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the home. No property, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.

Every house interacts with the soil beneath it uniquely. This is part of the reason why homes adjoining others have majorly different radon levels.

Radon saturation will fluctuate every day and monthly inside a reasonable range. A quick radon sample measures a single day or week and is a good metric of if the house has a radon accumulation.

Radon has a lifespan of about half a week. This means that radon gas concentration will not be any greater if the house is sealed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Enter the home?

No dwelling is totally hermetically sealed.

Radon gas can seep in through any ground-facing gap in the building such as drainage, plumbing, and small cracks in the foundation’s concrete.

The method to know certainly the saturation of radon in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Test Procedure

Testing a dwelling for radon gas is an important service when done as a part of a house purchase.

Our radon expert will place the radon gas probes in the house. Radon gas probes are placed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally between 1 and 3 probes are left in the structure for the radon gas analysis.

Our radon gas specialist will shut every window, shut the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is functioning in the standard manner. Your radon gas professional will additionally mark any required window with tamper indication tape to make sure that closed home standards are upheld.

The radon gas probes are left on the property for several days to record the levels of radon gas in the structure. A technician will come back to the house once the radon testing is done to take 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.
