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.
These are the test packages we currently offer:
48 Hour - $125
72 Hour - $175
All prices include pickup in Buncombe county, other counties will have an additional trip fee.
See our "Trip Fee FAQ" page for more details and how to save money!

How long does it take to get results?
From the time you order it with our office to results is about 5 business days:
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.
Do we need to do anything during the test?
Please do not touch 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?
Wasted Trip Fee
If we send a tech out and they cannot set or retreive the box and have to make an additional trip out, there will be a "wasted trip fee".
Payment is due at time the radon test is requested.
If you need to cancel your radon test, please call us the day before we will be setting the meter. Once the meter has been set, tests cannot be cancelled or refunded.
