  •  For Short or Long term Testing offer extremely accurate testing. The tests are left for 48 hours and once we pick up the test we will have the results the same day as we have all of the testing equipment in house.
  • Long term Radon Test we usually leave for 60-90 to offer a more accurate view of the conditions in the property over a longer period of time as the radon gas can vary throughout the year.
