I have just spent a half hour on the phone with Roger Perras in the MA Dept. of Public Health Radiation Control Program. His phone number is 800-723-6695 (or 800-Radon95). This conversation was informative.
My question to him was in reference to the issue in my previous blog about home inspectors passing off the responsibility of picking up a radon test. Roger said he has been getting more inquiries like mine. However, currently this is an unaddressed part of the radon testing industry.
Roger said that he suggests:
- using a certified radon tester or testing company
- understanding the testing procedure and protocol
- understanding the variability of radon test results
Here is a link to useful information for home buyers from the EPA:
I'll explain the three parts of his response in future bogs.
