Warm Weather + Radon Testing = Need for Better Communication

Warm Weather + Radon Testing = Need for Better Communication

As fellow Real Estate Professionals we understand the need to communicate effectively with clients regarding timely topics. We are now experiencing the warmest time of the year and anticipate radon report delays as a result of homes and buildings not being prepared for Warm Weather Radon Testing.

A significant percentage of our Home and Building Inspections include Radon Testing; it is an important environmental concern for most homebuyers today. In order for Tiger’s NRPP Certified Staff  to deliver Accurate Radon Test Reports to our clients,  we must have the proper test site conditions to provide our service in a timely fashion.

Notification to key-holders and occupants is at the top of our list when clients call for service. As you may be aware, each Tiger Client is sent a notice upon scheduling with Tiger regarding Radon Testing Protocol. Additionally, we leave a door tag behind when Radon Tests are set. Unfortunately, often times the flow of information does not continue on to the selling party. Because we don’t have permission to convey or enforce compliance with sellers, we need your assistance.

At Tiger, we want to help you be successful.  In order to do that, we need the support of the Real Estate Community to engage home selling clients when Radon testing is part of the sales contract. Ensuring the information detailing the Warm Weather Radon Testing Protocols gets to the occupant of the home or building, detailing the need to have closed house conditions at the beginning of and throughout the Radon Test period is critical. Once we arrive at the jobsite, we are at the mercy of the conditions present; not having closed house conditions delays reporting, it’s just that simple.

We are sending this information to all Realtors in our database in hopes that you will help us to help you keep your transaction moving forward. We need you to discuss the Closed House Conditions requirements with the occupants where Radon Screening has been requestedas you have the influence that we do not.

You may have read our previous newsletter “Warm Weather Radon Testing“.  Please familiarize yourself with this document and consider using the information to help us help you by forwarding it, along with a personalized message encouraging the occupants to comply with the testing requirements or notify you of any issues which would prevent compliance in advance of the scheduled test date. Working together, we can be successful in the delivery of timely information and remove impediments to our mutual success.
