Radon Testing, Missoula ID

Missoula ID Radon Testing

What’s Radon?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring carcinogen. Radon gas is proven to instigate lung cancer in people.

A large number of properties in the Missoula ID area have a radon gas saturation higher than the DNS action level.

Radon seeps out of the topsoil, not the house. No property, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon.

Every property interfaces with the ground beneath it differently. This is part of the reason why properties next door to each other may have majorly different radon levels.

Radon levels will rise or fall on different days and monthly inside a safe range. A quick radon test is a snapshot and a dependable bellwether of whether or not the property has radon gas contamination.

Radon has a lifespan of 3.8 days. As such, radon gas concentration will not be any higher if the property is closed for years or months.

How Does Radon Gas Seep into your dwelling?

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

Radon will seep in through each ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump drains, plumbing, and minor flaws in the concrete foundation.

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

Your Radon Testing Steps

Inspecting a property for radon gas is a special service when delivered concurrently with a property purchase.

The radon gas expert will position the radon detectors in the home. Radon probes are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. Typically between 1 and 3 monitors are placed in the house for the radon gas analysis.

Your radon gas expert will seal every window, close the vent on the fireplace, and ensure the heater or AC is functioning in the required manner. Your radon gas specialist will also mark every necessary window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that ventilation standards are upheld.

The radon monitors stay in the house for several days measuring the levels of radon gas in the house. An expert will come back to the property once the radon test is done to remove the monitors and generate a report.

Please call today at 208-701-6503 for a free consultation! Our radon testing staff will come to visit to hear about your property, measure your space, and get you going on making your Missoula 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.
