Learn more about radon and how we test for it from John McCarty, MKC’s Radon Testing Specialist.
How long does a radon inspection take?
How do I need to prepare my property for the test?
Can you test for radon in a condo property?
Maybe. If the condo is a townhouse-style property, and there is no shared open space in the basement or attic, then we can test for radon.
However, if the condo is an apartment-style unit, we cannot test for radon. This is because the conditions for radon testing require windows and doors to be closed before and during the radon test. We can’t control what other units do with their windows, so we can’t promise a successful test in this specific case.
Contact us for more information on testing your condo for radon.
Can you test for radon during the summer?
Not if it is hot outside and there is no air conditioning. Because radon inspection and testing requires you to keep the windows and doors closed for a period of 12 hours or more, this can create uncomfortable and even dangerous temperatures inside the home. Speak with one of our associates to learn more about your specific situation.
Can radon infiltrate my drinking water or my plumbing?
Can radon in water be mitigated?
