WARNING!!

 

Real Estate Agents nor Brokers should EVER perform RADON testing; Neither should they recommend which type of testing to be done!  THIS ACTIVITY INVITES INSTANT LAWSUIT FROM BUYER OR/AND SELLER!  It is also not a job that should be requested of a Home Inspection Service...there is simply too much at stake if they get it wrong!  TESTING SHOULD BE DONE ONLY BY A TRAINED AND CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN AND ONLY UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF A TRAINED ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST.  Homeowners should NERVER be encouraged to perform a RADON test for themselves.  If not done properly, testing results are unreliable and may result in long-term injury or even death.
