Radon Testing for Silver Lake WA

Silver Lake WA Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon?

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

38%+ of houses in the Silver Lake WA area have a radon gas level at or above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No home, new or old,is immune to radon gas intrusion.

Each home interacts with the ground in a different manner. That is why houses next door to one another have radically different radon gas levels.

Radon gas accumulation will fluctuate on different days and seasonally inside of a safe range. A quick radon test measures a small time period and a good indicator of if the land has a radon gas accumulation.

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

How Does Radon Penetrate a house?

Houses are not built to be 100% airtight.

Vapors will enter through every penetration in the property such as sump pumps, utility connections, and invisible flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.

Your way to know confidently the saturation of radon in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Testing Steps

Probing a home for radon is a unique service when completed as a part of a real estate sale.

Your radon gas professional will position the radon analyzers in the home. Radon probes are installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. It is typical that between one and three devices are located in the home for the radon gas test.

The radon technician will close every window and door, close the vent on the fireplace, and make certain the air conditioning is functioning in the standard manner. The radon specialist will also treat every required window with tamper indication tape to make sure that closed home conditions are maintained.

The radon gas devices remain in the structure for two or three days analyzing the amount of radon gas in the building. A technician will revisit the home after the radon test is complete to take the analyzers and create a report.

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.
