Question: Is a home inspector allowed to perform a radon inspection?
Top Answer (43% of 110 votes): In some cases.

Answer: In some cases
Explanation: Many home inspectors opt to get extra credentials and become certified to check homes and businesses for dangerous levels of radon. Many home inspector certification courses include a full radon certification training course. However, radon testing is not necessarily standard in every home inspection, and in fact, many home inspectors charge extra for this service. Every state has different rules for regarding radon in homes. Contact me or your State's environmental health and safety bureau or department to know your state’s regulations.
