MC2 Home Inspections LLC
ProMatcher
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
