Radon Testers, Inc. cannot be assured that the necessary conditions were maintained throughout the test period. There can be uncertainty with any radon measurement due to statistical variations and other factors such as operation of the building and weather conditions. The levels of radon can be higher or lower depending on the weather conditions. While we make every effort to maintain the highest possible quality control and include checks and verification steps in our procedures, we make NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, for the consequences of erroneous test results. Neither Radon Testers, Inc., nor its employees or agents shall be liable under any claim or charge in any form or any loss or cost, fees or damages of any nature or kind arising out of, resulting from or connected with, or sustained as a result of any radon test.
This radon test is a screening measurement that serves to indicate the potential for radon levels in the above referenced building. It will provide information needed to determine if any additional action or testing is needed.
Per the Division of Nuclear Safety and the United States EPA, certain conditions must be met prior to and during the test period. A letter outlining these conditions has been provided to the occupant, owner, or owner’s representative.
You understand that our control of these conditions are limited to the actual placement of the testing device. Any tampering or manipulation of the test conditions prior to or during the test period are out of our control. Changes in heating and ventilation may raise or lower radon levels. Inclement weather such as storms or high winds can contribute to unreliable test results. Since radon levels can vary greatly from day to day, season to season, as well as from room to room, this screening measurement only serves to indicate the potential for a radon problem. The test results are only an average of radon concentration in the area tested during the period the measurement device was exposed. A low level of radon achieved on a short-term test does not necessarily mean that the home tested has yearly radon levels that are below the 4.0 pCi/L “action level”. Radon levels may be significantly higher. There is no safe level of radon.Radon levels change. IEMA, Department of Nuclear Safety suggests regular follow-up measurements be made on a biannual basis (every two years) or sooner if structural changes or renovations to the house have ensued (room additions, drain tile systems, new sump pit, cracks). The 21,000 estimated deaths from radon per year is based on the 1.3 National Average
