Radon Testing in Sagle ID

Sagle, ID Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon?

Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing chemical. Radon is known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of properties in the Sagle ID area have a radon saturation higher than the DNS action limit.

Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the home. No home, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas intrusion.

Every house interacts with the dirt differently. This is part of the reason why homes next door to one another can have significantly different radon accumulation.

Radon accumulation will change every day and with the seasons within a normal range. Short-term radon measurement is a snapshot and a reliable indicator of if the property has radon saturation.

Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. That means radon gas accumulation will not be any greater if the structure is closed for months or years.

How Does Radon Filter into the property?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not 100% airtight.

Vapors can enter through every ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump pumps, pipeworks, and even minor cracks in the foundation’s concrete.

The way to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the property is to contract a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Testing Steps

Testing a home for radon gas is a unique procedure when completing a property transaction.

Our Sagle ID radon gas professional will situate the radon monitors in the dwelling. Radon gas probes will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically up to three monitors are located in the home for the radon analysis.

The radon professional will close all windows, seal the flue on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is operating in the prescribed manner.

Our radon gas professional will additionally treat all necessary windows with tamper indication tape to confirm that ventilation conditions are maintained.

The radon probes stay in the house for two or three days to measure the amount of radon gas in the house. A specialist will return to the property once the radon measurement is done to return the analyzers and write a report.

Contact us today for a no-cost pricing estimate! Our Sagle ID radon testing staff will meet with you to learn more about your property, take measurements, and get you started on making your Sagle ID house 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.
