When trying to help a client buy or sell a house, knowledge, quality service, and time is often of the essence. A Realtor® who is trying to help a client get a house on the market needs to have a variety of reputable vendors on speed dial for important situations. One of these should be a radon remediation and testing company.
Many homes in Pennsylvania have problems with high radon levels. In Bucks County, PA, 35% of homes have radon levels above the 4 pCi/L recommended action level, and other PA counties have similar issues. So the chances of a home needing radon remediation are about 30-35%. If you have established a business relationship with a professional radon company, you will know that you can trust the results, you will have an accurate idea of the time needed and the procedure involved, and you may even be able to get your clients’ home worked into a technician’s busy schedule.
What do You Look for in a Radon Remediation and Testing Company?
Qualified: The company or technician should be qualified and you can verify this by their certification number. Ask potential service providers for this number when you are interviewing.
Compliant: Testing, mitigation and any installed devices must conform to a region’s local regulations. Pennsylvania is in Region 3. The EPA Regional Office for this region is located at 1650 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19103 and the phone number is 800-438-2474.
Reputable: Check reviews and testimonials for the potential radon remediation company. People are more willing than ever to express their opinions online about companies who do a great (or terrible) job.
Effective: Regardless of reputation, you will be able to decide if a company is a good fit for you and your clients when you see the results of the work. Timeliness, accuracy, cost and quality of work is vital. The EPA recommends testing again after remediation to be sure that the radon levels have been reduced to acceptable levels. You want a company that gives great service and results time after time. They make you look good too!
