Radon Testing, Post Falls ID
What is Radon?
Radon gas is a dangerous carcinogen. It is well known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of homes in the Post Falls ID area have a radon gas saturation above the actionable limit.
Radon gas filters out of the soil, not the structure. No property, new or old, is immune to radon intrusion.
Every home interfaces with the dirt underneath it uniquely. That is why houses adjacent to others may have majorly different radon levels.
Radon gas accumulation will shift on different days and monthly inside a reasonable range. A one-time radon gas sample measures a small period and a solid metric of whether or not the home has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon gas has a lifespan of 3.8 days. That means that radon accumulation will not be any greater if the property is enclosed for months or years.
It may surprise you to know that homes are not 100% airtight.
Gaseous contaminants may enter through any ground-facing gap in the home such as drains, pipeworks, and minor cracks in the foundation’s concrete.
The technique to know with certainty the concentration of radon in the structure is to run a radon test.
Measuring a dwelling for radon is an important procedure when completed concurrently with a real estate sale.
The radon professional will situate the radon gas probes in the dwelling. Radon monitors are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. For most properties, multiple monitors are left in the property for the radon gas analysis.
Our radon expert will shut every window, seal the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the air conditioning is running in the required manner. The radon gas specialist will also treat all required windows with anti-tampering tape to confirm that closed home standards are maintained.
The radon devices remain in the property for 2-3 days to record the prevalence of radon gas in the structure. A specialist will revisit the structure after the radon measurement is done to take the analyzers and create a report.
