“How long does it take to complete a radon test?”
Radon testing takes two to three days to complete. Industry standards dictate that the radon monitor must be left in place for a minimum of 48 hours to get an accurate reading. When we place a radon monitor on Thursday or Friday, typically, we deliver the results on Monday.
“Where do you place the radon monitor?”
We place the radon monitor in the lowest livable level inside the house. If your home has a basement, it is placed there. In homes without a basement, the radon monitor is placed in a room away from windows, doors, vents, and chimneys.
Placing the radon monitor strategically away from vented areas provides a more accurate reading.
“I’m unsure of the radon gas levels in my home, now what?”
If you are a homeowner in Nashville or Knoxville, Tennessee, and you don’t know the radon levels in your home, the obvious answer is that you need a radon test. 1st Choice Home Inspections is happy to perform a residential radon test for you. Our home inspectors use Radstar professional radon measurement equipment.
After testing, your inspector provides a written report stating that radon levels are either below or above the recommended EPA action levels.
Your health and the health of your family are too important to take chances with anything other than a Certified Radon Report.
