Is the air in your home SAFE?
Accurate radon testing takes 90 days, so it’s hard to determine if a home is affected right before buying or selling. If you’re a buyer, this means it’s nearly impossible to include radon testing as a timely condition in your purchase contract. Many inspectors say they can do a “quick test,” but leading research says these are horribly inaccurate. The good news? Test kits are about $60 and the remedy usually costs less than $3000.
If you’re a homeowner, you may consider having your home tested for radon now (and remediated if needed), even if you’re not yet considering selling your home. This way when the time does come to sell, you can confidently disclose to potential buyers that radon is not an issue while ensuring your home is safe for you and your family.
