Determine the need for radon mitigation
A radon inspection provides the opportunity for homeowners to determine the need for remediation before the purchase of a home.
On-site radon testing and inspection will teach the buyer or homeowner about an existing radon system. Learn about radon from a certified service professional.
Radon Authority provides radon inspections when radon mitigation systems are active or inactive. We are expert radon contractors. We have been providing abatement contractor services for 30 years. A Radon Authority certified contractor can inspect a DIY radon mitigation system will be inspected and analyzed. Our service technician can determine whether or not an active radon system or inactive installation was properly installed and built to EPA recommendations. A radon inspection has the capability to determine if a radon remediation installation is safe to remain in the home. Over the years, we have found many unsafe radon mitigation installations through a radon home inspection.
Placement of the radon test
The most important part of the inspection can often be placing the radon test itself. Radon testing determines the amount of radon entering and remaining in the home. If the placement of the radon test is not located in living space appropriate for air testing, the results could be inconclusive. EPA recommends remediating any level which measures 4.0 pCi/L and above. A proper mitigation will eliminate and sustain radon levels to below 4.0 pCi/L. If your home or perspective home does not have a radon mitigation installation, then the home should be tested to determine the need for mitigation.

What harm can high levels of radon cause? The National Research Council has determined that radon elevations exposure can cause lung cancer.
Radon has been determined to be a carcinogen. It causes lung cancer. Persons exposed to heavy indoor radon run the risk of developing lung cancer. In fact, high concentrated levels of radon, found through radon testing is the second cause of lung cancer after smoking. A radon inspection will ensure and provide peace of mind to any homeowner and prospective buyer as to whether or not their family will breath safe indoor air and not toxic air. Some studies have also shown that radon can exasperate some lung conditions and more so the lungs of children. It is so important to test for radon
How to I get a Radon Inspection?
The process is really as simple as just picking up the phone to call us. Or, email us and tell us what you need. We have performed many radon inspections and found radon conditions and installations that needed attention. Inspecting a radon mitigation installation needs to be performed by a professional certified expert.
What are some clues that my Radon Mitigation is not working?
Some homeowners hear noises or do not hear any noise. We have knowledge as to what these systems should sound like or should not sound like. Another factor could be the condition of the wiring. And yet another problem indicator may be water surrounding the area. A good radon home inspector will notice or find these things and conditions.
The inspection of a radon mitigation system may include:
Repairs needed on Radon Abatement Components
Inspecting System Equipment
Replacement of the Radon System
What Are Some Of The Situations That Can Occur With A Radon Remediation System?
During a radon inspection, we inspect a mitigation system components. For this example, we would examine the mitigation fan. This radon fan may be leaking back into the home. Radon Authority knows what to check for this. We will check components such as the stack piping and we make sure the remediation system is up to the current code when possible.
Another factor concerning the usefulness of a radon mitigation system is the fact that many builders install passive (no fan) system. The homeowners may think that this type of radon abatement will automatically get rid of a gas problem, but without performing radon testing, there is really no way of knowing.
Another way a system could be obsolete is if it is outdated or insufficient for the size or type of home. A home layout and building materials used to build the home can effect the type of radon system that should have been installed to today's standards and in order to get the most benefit. Perhaps the home had an addition installed. In this situation, the prior radon remediation could be obsolete. Radon Authority has the experience to determine what is necessary to remove the gas to the best way possible. Remember, a novice home inspector does not have the proper experience to make these determinations.
An inspection which is properly done, can determine what could be needed to bring the radon mitigation system back to working properly and as best as possible to remove the most radon from the home.
Comprehensive radon inspection means using equipment to ensure a radon professional will target the correct problem and solve that problem if possible. Once the inspection is complete, the radon test will be accessed. If a system can be repaired we may be able to estimate that cost.
We will always recommend regular testing of radon every two years. In fact, the EPA also recommends performing radon testing every two years, siting the fact that levels can change. Changes occur in density of soil, construction could have been updated or deteriorated, and other factors allowing radon measurements and reading s to rise. By performing radon testing every two years, you you will be warned in a timely manner if levels are still reduced, prior to your family having been exposed for a long time. Make sure to call Radon Authority if levels change in your home so that we can discuss remediation.
