Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I'm a home inspector. What can Radalink do for me?
A: Explore all of the services and benefits we can provide you and your inspection business in our services overview, found here.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Your price will be based on the type and quantity of radon monitors you will need. Get more info here.
Q: How does Radalink's testing differ from charcoal cannister testing?
A: Our radon monitors collect hourly radon concentration and environmental conditions every hour for the duration of a test. This provides a far more accurate reading than a simple cannister collection process. Our reports show how levels may have fluctuated throughour the testing period, and can measure the radon conentration with an far greater than a charcoal test.
Q: What exactly does the Radalink radon monitor record?
A: Our monitors record radon concentration, temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity once per hour for the duration of the test. Our monitors also have a sensor that detects if the monitor has been moved during a test.
Q: What are the requirements to become a Radalink-affliated inspector?
A: The requirements can vary by state, including licensing or certification. Get information on certification at AARST-NRPP.com and find out the requirements of your state here. We prefer that all of our inspectors have a form of certification and that they pass a basic credit check as part of our application process.
Q: How can I become a Radalink radon inspector?
A: We have an application process that you can follow here.
Q: A test returned a level of over 4.0 pC/l. How should I handle this?
A: If we have validated the test, then the property owner should be informed of the concentration level and told that any radon level above the EPA recommended safe limit of 4.0 pC/l can be mitigated with a radon reduction system. These systems are not complicated or expensive. So, there should be no need for major concern if this involves a property being prepared for sale. But, after a mitigation system is installed, the radon levels should be tested again to make sure that the system is effectlively keeping the radon level below the EPA recommended safe limit.
Q: One of my tests had an Addendum A attached. What does this mean?
A: If we have attached an Addendum A to your report, then we have detected an anomly in the results, in either the radon concentration fluctuations or out-of-the-orinary environmental variables. The test may not be able to be validated as a result of what we have noted in the results. The Addendum A will clearly explain the specific reason for its inclusion.
