Radon Testing, Priest River ID

Priest River ID Radon Testing

What to Know About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.

A large number of homes in the Priest River ID area have a radon gas saturation above the actionable limit.

Radon filters out of the soil, not the building. No structure, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas infiltration.

Every house meshes with the soil beneath it differently. That is part of the reason why homes next door to one another can have significantly different radon saturation.

Radon saturation will rise or fall on different days and with the seasons inside an acceptable range. A short-term radon gas sample measures a single day or week and is a dependable bellwether of whether the house has a radon gas issue.

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

How Does Radon Gas Enter your home?

No property is entirely airtight.

Gas may seep in through each ground-facing gap in the house such as sump drains, pipes, and minor cracks in the foundation.

Your way to know with confidence the levels of radon gas in the house is to contract a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Test Procedure

Probing a home for radon is a special procedure when delivered with a house sale.

Your radon specialist will install the radon probes in the house. Radon probes will be dropped off in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. On average a few devices are placed in the home for the radon gas test.

Our radon professional will seal all windows, seal the damper on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is running in the standard manner. Your radon gas expert will also seal all indicated windows with tamper indication tape to ensure that ventilation requirements are met.

The radon apparatus are stored in the house for two or three days recording the saturation of radon gas in the house. An expert will revisit the house after the radon test is finished to remove the monitors and generate a report.

Call us today at 208-701-6503 for a zero-cost pricing estimate! Our radon testing consultants will meet with you to help you with your property, take measurements, and get you on target on making your Priest River ID home 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.
