General Questions and Answers
How much can I charge for a radon test? The national average for a test is $125 - $150.

It is expensive to get into performing radon testing? If you are using charcoal testing devices, typically the hard cost for the device with lab fees range from $17 - $25.  If you use a device that prints out a report immediately, these devices range from $1,000 - $3,500 or can be rented for about $100 per month.

How long does it take to perform a radon test? Most tests are short term and will only be 48 hours (takes longer to drive to the job than to actually set the device).

Is there really a need for radon testing in real estate? Within the discloser statements for the buyer there is a page where the buyer must indicate by signing if he/she would like, or waives, the right for a radon test (plus other environmental issues on that page).

This is a business you can afford to add to your professional services.
