The Portland Real Estate Market is hot. If you’re looking to purchase a property, seek out quality radon gas testing services. This is the best time to test and mitigate a radon problem. Motivated sellers are most likely to help or cover the cost of mitigation. The Portland Metro, Clark County, and Southwest Washington have elevated radon levels which can affect air quality and can lead to serious health issues. Chronic exposure to radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon exposure is the least expensive environmental hazard to mitigate and financial assistance programs are available for homeowners. So, there's no reason not to test your home for this colorless and odorless radioactive gas.
RESIDENTIAL RADON TESTING
Before buying a home, it is essential to test for radon gas. Time is tight in a real estate transaction, which is why we provide immediate results with AARST-NRPP certified radon gas testing services near Portland, OR. We use the most modern radon testing technology: 48-hour continuous running monitors. All concluded radon tests will come with a recommendation for follow-up. Tests that indicate radon gas levels at or above the EPA standard of 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) will be paired with a bid for a radon mitigation system. In addition to our residential radon testing services, you can learn more about our Environmental Real Estate Inspection programs here.
If you are a homeowner but not currently involved in a property transaction, you can test your home for under $20 through Environmental Works. Contact us or call 503-809-2457 and we’ll provide you with a DIY charcoal kit that you can return to the lab (postage paid) after 72 hours. Make sure to test under closed conditions for the most accurate results.
