Heading Radon in Minnesota

Has your home ever been tested for Radon gas?

It's a good idea to have your new home tested for Radon gas as part of your home inspection.  If radon levels are unacceptable, the Buyer may have bargaining power to renegotiate or request a radon mitigation system installment as a contingency of the sale.  It is the responsibility of the Buyer to determine what is an acceptable level of radon gas.  The Minnesota Department of Health offers resources and information regarding radon and radon concerns that may arise in a real estate transaction

How to Test

Metro Radon Measurement Service* is one company that provides this service for $119.95** (same day results optional for an additional $10 charge) + travel charges if not within 20 miles of 55122 zip code.  For information and appointments, call 651-208-7100.
