The two most popular methods for radon testing are charcoal test kits and Continuous Radon Monitors (CRM's).

Not only are the test results available extremely quickly (as little as 48 hours) but the device can also detect tampering. Upon retrieval of the device, a printout is available immediately showing hourly readings, as well as the EPA average during the testing period. Make sure to schedule a CRM test during your inspection period when putting an offer on a house. The best time to determine if the house has a radon problem is before you buy.

"I want to compliment you on your business culture and professionalism while at our home. As you know I am a local developer and builder. You as well as your entire staff during each and every phase amazed me with your preparation, direction, timeliness and most importantly to my wife and I your cleanliness. I have spent years and years trying to adjust to the stereotypical idea that homeowners have contracts, which you may well know in many cases is not good. It was refreshing to work with you and your company who’s philosophy is obviously to deliver a high caliber experience to your client. Job very well done." - Ray and Dianne D.
