Radon: Should I have my NC home tested for Radon?

Should I have my Triangle North Carolina Home tested for Radon?


What should I know about having my new home tested for Radon? The information below is provided to assist buyers and sellers in making an informed decision as to whether or not to have a radon test performed when purchasing or selling a home. 

Whether or not to have a radon test performed is a question many of our home buyers ask. In 2015 - 2015, a decent machine based radon test tends to cost about $150.00 - $175.00 +/-. Many home inspectors own machines and are qualified to perform radon test. The machine will generally stay inside the home for approximately 3 days.

We have been told, the machines are preferred because they cannot be easily tampered with as can the cannisters. The machines will read when they have been moved. 

You should also note, the machines are typically non-invasive should someone be living in the property when the test is being performed.

If I lived where there were basements I would have a radon test. Here in Florida more ofter a mold test. Every home has some sort of Mold just a question of whether it is toxic.

How safe is "too safe" Carla Freund ?   If it's a concern or there is any question, a test should be done.   It's a small price to pay for good health and peace of mind.
