Radon Testing in Rathdrum ID

Rathdrum ID Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon is a common-place cause of cancer. Radon is proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

A large number of houses in the Rathdrum ID area have a radon gas concentration near or above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon gas seeps out of the silt, not the home. No house, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon gas contamination.

Every house interacts with the ground underneath it differently. This is part of the reason why houses adjoining others have radically different radon accumulation.

Radon concentration will change every day and with the seasons within an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas sample is a snapshot and a solid bellwether of if the land has a radon accumulation.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only days. That means radon gas levels will not be any greater if the property is enclosed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Enter the property?

Houses are not built to be 100% hermetically sealed.

Radon gas may suffuse through any penetration in the property such as sump drains, utility connections, and small cracks in the foundation.

The way to know with certainty the saturation of radon in the home is to order a radon test.

Our Radon Test Procedure

Testing a home for radon gas is a unique process when done with a real estate sale.

A radon gas professional will situate the radon gas probes in the home. Radon probes will be placed on any level that touches the ground. On average up to three monitors are installed in the home for the radon gas measurement.

Your radon technician will shut every window and door, close the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heater or AC is functioning in the standard manner. Our radon specialist will also seal every necessary window with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed home conditions are maintained.

The radon apparatus are stored in the building for several days recording the saturation of radon gas in the home. A professional will come back to the house once the radon measurement is complete to return the devices and create a report.

Call us today for a no-cost estimate! Our radon testing staff will come to visit to learn more about your property, measure your space, and get you going on making your Rathdrum ID house 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.
