RADON TESTING

Realtors & Buyers

Here are a few points that set Advanced Radon Detection Services apart:

I never send out an uncertified family member, friend, or subcontractor to set up or pick up Radon testing. I handle everything myself to ensure it is done right and quality / accuracy is maintained. This results in virtually zero callbacks or issues later on which harm the reputation of the Realtor that recommended me.

Protocol is always followed. While it is easier to cut corners to save time and play politics – I will always take the road that protects the interests of the party ordering the test. Evidence of tampering or interference is presented to the Realtor and client and appropriate, reasonable recommendations are made. I know we can’t expect ideal conditions for every test, but I do everything reasonable and within my ability to get an accurate measurement. I treat each test as if I’m measuring a home my immediate family member will be moving into.

Preventative Maintenance. Expectations are set and the needed environment is communicated to the parties involved, so there is less room for errors.

Cutting edge education and experience. Please click on the link in my signature where it shows NRPP ID 107466RT. There you will see that not only do I hold Analytical Certification through National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP), much higher continuing ed credit & experience than most in the Triangle area, I also hold Advanced Certification for Measuring Multifamily Buildings. This level of training and experience makes a difference when combined with the most accurate and reliable Radon Monitors in the industry. Consider this when other companies are putting most of the focus on the monitors they use, the monitor just measures the room it’s been put into – it’s up to the experience of the Radon Tech to address all of the other environmental factors that WILL affect a test’s accuracy.

Radon is the Second Leading Cause of Lung Cancer Deaths in the USA.

Exposure to Radon in the home is responsible for an estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year. The Surgeon General has warned that Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. In addition to this, if the home has a private well, then the EPA states that radon in drinking water causes about 168 cancer deaths per year: 89% from lung cancer caused by breathing radon released to the indoor air from water and 11% from stomach cancer caused by consuming water containing radon.”

Testing is the only way to determine if you and your family are at risk from Radon. The E.P.A. and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for Radon.
