Recent Review: As we hoped, Bruce and Patricia provided us with personalized and responsive help, even over the Memorial Day weekend. The inspection report was complete, with useful pictures, and the "extra services"--mold and radon--were performed and reported promptly and professionally. The cost was exactly what was estimated, and, as I've said, the service was first-rate throughout. No mold was found, but radon was, and therein hangs a tail I feel I should share with Angie's list:: Radon lessons learned the hard way: As I said, we lost the sale of our home in Ohio when the buyer's inspector found radon. Then we couldn't finance the purchase of the condo in Florida when *our* inspector found radon there: Our bank's underwriter wouldn't approve the loan for the sale because of the radon! All this cost us much time and worry and money. So here's what we recommend you do about radon: For your current home, buy yourself a Safety Siren radon detector ($125 from Amazon; there may be other makes or models available by the time you read this.) Find out if you have radon now. In the short term, you may be able to reduce indoor radon by just turning ceiling fans and opening windows. The more-expensive electronic meter will let you continuously monitor this kind of simple mitigation effort; the cheaper one-time, mail-away test kits will not. (Plus, you can use the meter to test for radon in your mother-in-law's apartment and your children's homes.) Longer-term (and certainly prior to sale, since you must disclose radon) in most localities "sub-slab depressurization" (SSD) is relatively inexpensive (~ $1000). In our Ohio home, it reduced the radon from 14.0 to the ambient outdoor level of 1.0. (The EPA limit is 4.0). Florida, where radon is often *in the building materials*, can require a more expensive heat-exchanger ventilation system (~$3,000). For your next home, you may not be able to use your meter to inspect the property (it takes 2 days for a reading), but you can hire an inspector to do the test. It's worth hiring pros like Bruce and his team for the pre-purchase test, because they can tell you exactly how difficult it will be to do long-term remediation. If radon is found, think twice about telling your bank/mortgagee! Like us, you might get the seller to pay for the remediation, but it will turn up in the closing papers, and--as she did for us--the bank's underwriter might become a bigger problem than the radon mitigation itself :-((.
