Radon Testing is one of our primary services and can be done with or without a home inspection.
Are you getting ready to sell your home? Have it tested in advance!
A Radon Test is a common request during real estate transactions. As such, we offer a discount when paired with a home inspection.
January is national radon action month. In an effort to support our partners in spreading awareness, we offer discounted testing around this time.

Radon is a colorless and odorless gas, so testing is the only way to know if your levels are elevated. There are various methods and devices used to measure radon levels. It is essential to follow proper placement and closed home condition guidelines to ensure you're getting an accurate reading. Therefore hiring a professional is something to consider. The state of the art NORAD testing devices we use for testing are classified as blind continuous monitors. The reports we provide offer time and date stamped radon measurements every hour sent by Envirolabs Inc., a 3rd party company. We receive a copy of the report at the time it is sent to our customers. If mitigation is recommended based on the test results, Elliott Environmental Home Services, LLC can help! But first, we will provide you with any knowledge and information you need to make a confident decision. We believe that the foundation for healthy air quality in homes start from the group up. Let us help make sure your levels are safe!
The NORAD testing devices we use are approved by the National Radon Proficiency Program. You can find that list of approved devices here: NRPP Approved Devices - NRPP
Our devices need to be active for a minimum of (48 - 72) consecutive hours inside the home. EPA guidelines for closed home conditions should be followed for (12) hours before beginning the test.

Over time, unpredictable environmental changes can cause radon levels to fluctuate. Therefore, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends having your home tested every two years even if there is an existing mitigation system installed in your home.
