The Standard Plus Radon Home Inspection 

$420.00

The Standard Plus Radon Home Inspection combines the Standard Home Inspection with a Radon Test of the home.
Radon in the home is a serious concern. It is actually radioactive elements in the air that can be inhaled into the lungs. It does not have a smell or color. There is no way to know if it is in your home unless Radon Testing is performed.

There can be significant health concerns as a result of being exposed to Radon Gas. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today.

The recommendation is to address a home with a Radon level of 4 picocuries/liter (pCi/L) or higher. 

If the home we are testing for you is found to have undesirable levels of radon, a Radon Remediation System can be installed to alleviate the higher radon levels.

Radon Remediation Systems are not uncommon and quite effective in the removal of radon from the home. A Radon Remediation Company should be contacted to discuss the system options and costs.

​My Radon Testing of the Home includes the following:

  1. Assessing the lower levels of the Home for the best location for the Radon Test.
  2. Discuss the previous 24 hours with the current occupants of the Home.
  3. Initiate the Test: Locating two Radon Testing Canisters and Document the present conditions.
  4. Install tamper indication tape on windows and doors if nessessary.
  5. Arrange for the Radon Test termination time in approximately 24 to 48 hours from the Test Initiation Time.
  6. Terminate the Test: Pick up the Radon Testing Canisters, Properly seal  and send them to the Testing Laboratory.
  7. Test Results are usually available the same day that the Testing Laboratory receives the Testing Canisters.
  8. Complete the Radon Test Report and send the Client a copy via E-Mail.

​Please be advised that the Radon Test results will be available after analysis at Radon Testing Corporation of America. The price is based on standard mail service.
Please see The Standard Home Inspection for all that includes. Radon Testing is usually a recommended addition to a Home Inspection.
