Local and Professional Kansas City Radon Monitoring
Radon Monitoring is a test for the presence of Radon gas or its radioactive decay products in the home. This protocol for this Radon test, in the Real Estate industry is established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): protocols EPA 402-R092-003 and EPA 402-R-92-004.
The test is a 48-hour snapshot of the radon in your home to determine whether your home has concentrations of Radon in excess of 4 pCi/L (4 pico Curies per Liter of air), the EPA’s action level recommending radon reduction.
In the Kansas City metro area, and also a few nearby counties, we are in Zone 1 (please check out this map ink for areas of interest). The soil conditions from the underlying geologic strata in this zone is such that the average indoor Radon screen readings are greater than 4 pCi/L.
NRPP Trained and Approved Radon Testing
Radon testing is performed by a Certified Inspector and monitors in accordance with National Radon Prevention Program (NRPP) and EPA protocols. The inspector is NRPP trained and uses only NRPP approved and calibrated devices following EPA testing protocols for Radon monitoring.
The results are from the Continuous Radon Monitor immediately after the testing period are immediately available. A full Radon report can be downloaded and sent via the internet to an email address(es) of the clients choosing. Nothing needs to be shipped off to a lab requiring additional delays waiting for the results.
The inspector is certified through the Kansas Department of Health & Environment, Kansas Radon Program, to read the results of your test and to perform radon monitoring in all 50 states. GeoInspections’ radon certification number is KS-MS-0386.
