Testing For Radon
At Montana’s Home Inspection Services, we use state-of-the art Radon Testing equipment and National Standards to detect any Radon exposure threats in your home.
Radon is a gas that does not give off any smell and cannot be seen. Premium electrical detection equipment operated by a professional is the safest way to detect Radon vulnerabilities in your home.
Mitigating high levels of Radon varies with the source of a Radon emission in a home. We can help mitigate Radon problems that occur with foundation areas, crawl spaces, windows, water heaters and wells, showers and plumbing.
How Does Radon Enter the Home and Cause Unsafe Levels of Radon?
- Soil and Bedrock: Radon gas escapes from bedrock fissures and gradually finds its way to the surface through loose soil where it eventually comes into contact with home foundations and crawlspaces.
- Windows and Foundation: A common entry point for Radon gas, that has been found to present problems.
- Water Heaters and Wells: Radon gas can get into well water lines and make its way into the home water heaters, distributing the gas through the home.
- Showers and Plumbing: An entry point for Radon gas in the home.
