Radon Testing, Medical Lake WA

Medical Lake WA Radon Testing

What is Radon?

Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon gas is proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.

Many properties in the Medical Lake WA area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable amount.

Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the structure. No house, new or old,is exempt from radon intrusion.

Every property interacts with the topsoil beneath it in a different way. That is why properties next door to each other often have significantly different radon levels.

Radon accumulation will rise or fall on different days and seasonally inside a acceptable range. A short-term radon gas test measures a small time period and a good metric of if the structure has a radon gas contamination.

Radon has a dangerous duration of about half of a week. That means radon saturation won’t be worse if the structure is sealed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Seep into a dwelling?

No property is 100% airtight.

Radon may infiltrate through any penetration in the building such as sump drains, pipes, and small cracks in the concrete foundation.

The method to know with certainty the accumulation of radon gas in the abode is to run a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Test Procedures

Testing a dwelling for radon is a important procedure when delivered concurrent with a house transaction.

Our radon gas technician will situate the radon monitors in the house. Radon analyzers are installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally between 1 and 3 monitors are placed in the structure for the radon measurement.

Our radon gas specialist will close every window, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the HVAC system is operating in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas specialist will also mark any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that ventilation requirements are upheld.

The radon gas monitors are left in the property for 2-3 days to record the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A expert will return to the home once the radon test is finished to remove the probes and write a report.

Call us today for a zero-cost pricing estimate! Our radon testing staff will come out to help you with your property, measure the area, and get you started on making your Medical Lake WA 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.
