Millyard Home Inspection
ProMatcher
Answer: No, it is typically an additional charge
Explanation: Radon is a odorless, colorless, tasteless, radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. Breathing radon gas for prolonged periods of time can present a significant health risk for your family. Nearly one out of every 15 homes is estimated to have elevated radon levels. This threat is completely preventable; radon can be detected with a simple test. You can not predict your home's radon level based on state or local radon measurements. Testing is the only way to find out what your home's radon level actually is. We send all of our test samples to a nationally accredited lab for analysis with a fast 48 hour turnaround on lab results.

Greenbush Property Services LLc
Answer: No, it is typically an additional charge
Explanation: Typically, no. Radon is not a thing that should be tested in a one day inspection. Radon testing, ideally, should be done BEFORE the home goes on the market. The best a home inspector can and should offer is a "short term" test which gives a snap shop of the conditions of the radon level over a three day period. If a home inspector tells you he or she can definitively tell you the radon potential and level of the home in one day or during a short term test, he may be out to make a quick buck or hasn't been educated enough to know better. Radon is serious and can not be fully discussed in the short space we have here. If you would like to talk seriously about the options for radon testing please contact Apollo Zimmerman of A-Z Michigan Home Inspection at (248) 962-3757
