Radon Testing Companies
Not every radon testing company or home inspector has the proper qualifications to test your home for radon, especially not in situations where it is required for a home sale. In the State of Minnesota, radon testing must be performed by a certified radon testing professional like Straight Answer Home Inspections. In Wisconsin, it is not required by law for radon testing to be done by certified contractors, which has resulted in many homeowners unfortunately getting scammed by unlicensed and uncertified companies. Radon testing isn’t something to cut corners on, hire someone that does things right the first time and give us a call!
If your home tests at or above 4.0 pCi/L, (The EPA Action Level) it is strongly recommended that you have a radon mitigation system installed to bring those levels back to a safe and livable range. This can be done by having a radon mitigation system installed into the home. Radon mitigation works by creating a negative pressure underneath the slab of the home to draw the rising radon gas out before it ever has a chance to enter the home. Radon mitigation is becoming commonplace in both Wisconsin and Minnesota and will generally be requested during real estate transactions before the home can close. Whether you are buying or selling, we can help you with all of your mitigation needs. Visit our radon mitigation website HERE to learn more!

Yes, the radon testing devices we use for all of our clients is calibrated for precise measurements and are trusted for all real estate transactions. Radon levels can fluctuate throughout the year, but you can be sure that the measurements taken during the testing period are pinpoint accurate.
The EPA suggests testing your home for radon every two years, even if you already have a radon mitigation system installed. The reason for this is that new gaps and cracks can form in your foundation during that time that can provide new entryways from rising radon gasses.
