Living in a home with elevated levels of radon is very dangerous. Long-term exposure to high concentrations of radon has been linked to thousands of deaths in Canada every year.
East Coast Home Inspection Ltd is proud to offer Radon Testing in your homes Air & Water, as part of a full home inspection or as a separate service. We are certified by the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (Canadian-NRPP) in both Measurement and as Certified Analysis Laboratory.
This additional level of certification allows East Coast Home Inspection to provide your Radon Test Results the same day the testing devices are collected. You will not have to wait weeks for your results.
What Can You Expect
As a certified radon measurement professional, we will come to your home and deploy the testing device. When deploying the testing device we take every opportunity to provide an explanation of the testing procedures during our in-home consultation. After the testing period, we will return, seal the testing unit and have it analyzed our certified lab. The results of the test will be sent to you directly and confidentially, we will review the report with you, and provide any suggestions for next steps based on the results.
Radon Test - Real Estate Transaction
When choosing a radon test as part of your home inspection we will contact the Realtors/Sellers involved to coordinate the deployment of the testing device. We make every effort to deploy the test as early as possible, prior to your scheduled home inspection date, to allow for the longest test. This will allow the radon test to be completed the same day your inspection is scheduled, saving you time! Your Radon results will actually be part of your inspection report in its own section with all the important details in one convenient place.
