Due Diligence Period – Complete a Radon Inspection

Radon is a natural gas that exists in the earth that the EPA has warned can be a health risk to people living in a home if the levels are above a certain level that is measured by a Radon Inspection.  For more on Radon, see our Buyers Guide To Radon.  A radon inspection can be conducted by some general home inspectors at the same time as the home inspection, although the results usually take a few extra days to come back.  If a home is determined to have a radon level above the recommended level of 4, the condition can be mitigated by installing a Radon Mitigation System.  Not all buyers elect to have the radon test done but we recommend it to all of our clients.
