Testing For Radon – For Your Client’s Health Sake


Recommending a radon gas measurement test for a client’s home, before a transaction is complete, can only add an additional hurdle to a complicated event.

Buying a home is probably the most expensive purchase you will ever make. This then is no time to shop for a cheap inspection.
