After the inspection is completed, you will receive a detailed Prospective Home Inspections report about our findings.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer. It is tasteless, odorless and colorless.
The EPA recommends that all homes be tested for radon.
Testing during the inspection process can tell you whether remediation steps are warranted. If the results come back over 4.0, the home should be mitigated by a licensed radon mitigation company.
Radon testing takes 48 hours, using state of the art electronic equipment, results and a full written report are emailed to you within two hours after completion of the test.
We can add a Radon test to your scheduled Home Inspection for an additional fee.
