Several weeks ago I learned that a customer had a home inspector that came in and set down a
monitor on the kitchen counter and then did the home inspection.
Once done, the inspector picked up the monitor and gave the readings.
This is NOT an approved method of testing for Radon “Radiation” during a
Home Inspection for Real Estate Transaction.
There is Radon in Every Home! We just do not know the levels until the home is tested with the proper equipment!
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) states that during a Home Inspection
these protocols for a precise testing environment are required!
The machines that should be used are Continuous Radon Monitors
We use the Corentium Pro which is one of the Best in the Business!
The Corentium Pro is fully AARST/NRPP-certified for Radon tests and home inspections in the United States,
it complies with the EPA guidelines and can perform 48-hour measurements.
The model should measure radon, barometric pressure, relative humidity, and temperature.
You need these other measurements to determine accuracy, tampering, and weather events
that can determine more about the levels of radiation coming from the break down of
uranium in the soil specifically from the home being tested.
