Radon Measurements for
Home & Commercial Properties
- Short term simultaneous
passive integrating tests
- Short term hourly CRM
- Short term RDP test
- Long term Alpha Track
Reasons why RHMM can help
you with your radon testing in your Home, Business or during Real
A fully certified person by
the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) will do the test
EPA standards and procedures
will be followed.
Minimum 48 hour test ("Short
Term" test) will be observed.
Closed house conditions will
be observed 12 hours prior to, and during test.
Choice of two short-term detector types:
- Passive (E-PERM)
detector: Advantage: Electrical failure proof, independent of humidity compared to a charcoal test device.
Radon Monitor: Advantage: Tamper resistant and electrical failure proof.
Your choice of two long-term detector types:
- Typically, for 7 days
to 63 days: Longer "Short Term" E-PERM detector (Reason for
the funny name is that the EPA classification for any test shorter than
90 days is "Short Term").
- For more than 90 days,
up to one year: Alphatrack-type
These "Long Term" Radon tests may also be useful after mitigation has
been done, and for the one year or bi-annual follow-up tests.
Quick Turnaround Time of Results: Immediately
after the test we will call you with the results. If desired we e-mail
written report to you within 24 hours after the end of the test.
If mitigation is recommended
according to norms set by the EPA we can inform you of the
possibility and give you a free estimate of the costs for mitigation.
concentration in your home.
If you have read the linked pages above, you now understand what radon
is, where it comes from, how it can affect our health and who is at
risk. In the next few linked pages we give some more information about
how to measure the radon level in your home and when is the best time
for testing. It is best to use a testing company that is certified by
the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA, or recently also
the NRSB), because for a company to be certified they have agreed to
follow the guidelines and standardized protocols formulated by the EPA
In order to give more background information we have added some Radon
Statistics by County, and to emphasize the fact that the problem of
radon in homes is a generally recognized health concern we added a
statement from the U.S. Surgeon General about radon and health.
Two examples of radon
tests following the EPA guidelines (during a 48 hour interval) for real
estate transaction are:
Monitor (CRM) has tamper resistant features built in for real estate
||Passive Radon Test.
This type is not influenced by increased humidity as some other integrating device tests
(charcoal tests) are.
If scheduled radon tests are cancelled during the last 48 hours before
the original scheduled testing start time (or later) a
cancellation fee ($25) and driving charge will be assessed upon
cancellation. In addition, by accepting our equipment the customer
acknowledges to be responsible for equipment replacement costs if not
returned to RHMM.
