Radon Testing, Post Falls ID

Post Falls ID Radon Testing

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.

How Does Radon Gas Infiltrate a dwelling?

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.

Our Radon Gas Testing Method

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.

Give us a call today for a zero-cost price estimate! Our Post Falls ID radon testing experts will come out to ask about your property, take measurements, and get you going on making your Post Falls ID property one you can take pride in!

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.
