Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas and long-term exposure to high levels of radon can lead to lung cancer.

 

We recommend that a new radon test should be performed if you are buying/selling a home, you have renovated or altered your home since you last tested, or every two years. Even if the home has a radon mitigation system, you should retest every few years (or before purchasing) to make sure the mitigation system is still functioning properly.

 

WNC Independent Labs offers one of the most accurate tests available.

Please note: this tests for radon in your home, not in your water.​

We can usually start a test within one to two business days.  After the test is collected, you will have your report within 24 hours.

How far out do we need to schedule?


We can usually set the radon meter next or 2nd business day. It has to sit for 48 or 72 hours and then we come back out and pick it up. After we pick it up, you will get your report by email within 36 hours.




How long does it take to get results?


From the time you order it with our office to results is about 5 business days: We can usually set the radon meter same or next business day. It has to sit for 48 to 72 hours and then we come back out and pick it up. After we pick it up, you will get your report by email within 36 hours.




Does someone need to meet you there?


We need to be able to get into the house to set the meter and pick up the meter. If the house is for sale with a real estate agent, we can usually get access the same way agents do and would not need anyone to meet us.




Do we need to do anything during the test?


Please do not touch the meter. Please do not leave windows or doors open in the room with the meter.




Where do you place the meter?


The meter should be placed in the lowest finished living level of the house.




How do we pay for the test?
