    Information about Radon in Wisconsin


    Elevated radon levels are very common in the Wisconsin counties I serve. Radon is a
    know carcinogen and linked to lung cancer.

    I provide radon sampling using a electronic continuous radon monitor-Sun Nuclear
    Model 1027. This device is placed in the home for a minimum of 48 hours and
    gathers hourly readings of the radon levels in the air. I schedule a return visit to
    retrieve the monitor and will be able to download the data giving instant results. Quick
    results are crucial to the real-estate transaction so you have time to mitigate the
    radon or negotiate for repair costs.

    The cost, with a home inspection, starts at $125. Testing without an
    inspection is subject to additional travel charges.

    Radon sampling should be specified in the offer to purchase contract. Permission
    must be obtained from the seller due to disclosure laws. If the testing was not written
    into the offer to purchase contract the buyer would not be able to use the results for
    negotiations or void the contract. On occasion sellers permit testing because it is a
    noninvasive test. If you were unable to allow for testing I can perform this test at a later
    date but there are lower cost methods of testing available through your county
    extension office or self-administered test canisters available at most large hardware
    stores. These usually cost $20-$30 and take up to 2 weeks for testing and results
    after mailing.

    The cost of mitigating the radon in most modern homes is $1000-$2000. The cost
    can vary greatly depending on the construction methods of the home and radon levels.

    The most complete and up to date information on radon in Wisconsin should be
    obtained by the links below. Follow the links to find average radon levels in your zip
    code. Remember radon levels depend on many factors such as geology, construction
    of the home, and weather conditions. Homes within the same subdivision can great
    differences in levels…without testing you may be at risk.
