Warm Weather Radon Testing
The first warm days of Spring are just around the corner. It’s a natural tendency to want to open the windows and take in the fresh air. We agree… except when a Radon Test is scheduled to be performed.
Our congratulations to you on the anticipated sale of your home. We just have a bit of work to do to help the process move along accordingly…
As your Listing Agent has informed you, the Radon Test scheduled in your home will require you to follow a testing standard called “Closed House Conditions” during the Radon Test Period of at least 48 hours. What does that mean to you?
Very simply, the entire house must be kept closed during the Radon Test Period. This includes all windows, doors and any ventilation that will discharge air to the exterior of the home, along with a few systems operation restrictions which may or may not apply to your home.
You will be left a Radon Testing Notice with specific directions at the time of the testing designed to maintain compliance with the Radon Testing Protocol which addresses normal entry and exit to and from your home.
It is critical that the Radon Testing Standards are followed in order for the Home Buyer to get an accurate Radon Test, as testing is time sensitive and is commonly being paid for by the Home Buyer.
Radon is an important Health Concern to most New Home Buyers and following the Testing Protocols is critical to achieving Accurate Test Results.
To learn more about Radon Testing Protocols for Home Buyers and Sellers in Real Estate Transaction visit the EPA Website.
If you cannot comply with the Radon Testing Protocols you should contact your Realtor as soon as possible prior to the scheduled testing to explore your options.
Your Tiger Group Environmental Screening Professional can answer any questions you may have regarding Radon Testing – we will leave our contact information on the “Radon Testing Notice” left in your kitchen at the time of setting the test.
We look forward to working with you in the near future.
