Radon Testing

East Tennessee Home Inspections, Inc. uses electronic equipment to measure radon gas levels.  This means you will not have to wait the additional time to receive your Radon Test Result.  There is no need to mail off test kits to laboratories and wait for their analysis and results which adds days for you to receive your radon test results.  Note…The State of Tennessee requires 48 hours of testing for a real estate transaction.

Radon Test Reports

The equipment will display the test result.  A computer generated report can also be printed when the test time has concluded.

According to the U.S. Surgeon General:

“Indoor radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.”
