Radon Screening

RADON GETS IN THROUGH:

1. Cracks in solid floors
2. Construction joints
3. Cracks in walls
4. Gaps in suspended floors
5. Gaps around service pipes
6. Cavities inside walls
7. The water supply

 

The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. H&J Freile offers two methods of testing for radon. A charcoal canister or passive test and a Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) or active test. The CRM is a premium test that provides tamper detection circuitry and hourly recording of radon levels to improve reliability and confidence in the test results. The radon measurement with a CRM can be obtained in as little as 24 hours and is typically available in 72 hours. Based on house construction and conditions at the time of the test, a charcoal canister may be placed in the house along with the CRM for additional information. The charcoal canister test is a basic and economical test. Results from the charcoal canister test are typically available in 7 to 10 days. Radon in water testing is also available.

The State of New Jersey requires that any radon test performed for a real-estate transaction be conducted by a licensed radon measurement technician and evaluated by a licensed laboratory. This means that the test device must be placed and retrieved by a licensed technician. All H&J Freile home inspectors are licensed radon measurement technicians. In addition, H&J Freile has two full-time environmental technicians that are also licensed for radon measurement. Be wary of anyone who conducts a radon test and asks you, the homeowner or realtor to retrieve the measurement device. Not only will the test results be questionable; it is against the law.
