Madison Radon Testing

Madison Radon Testing is a locally owned business offering radon tests for home inspections and homeowners alike. The owners, Kirk and Lindsey Mefford, are nationally certified radon measurement specialists. They do not sell radon mitigation systems, so customers can be confident that all radon reports are unbiased, and provide accurate measurements of the radon found in a home.

Radon testing is a common part of the home inspection process. The amount of radon can vary by home, and can not be estimated by neighborhood or region. A standard test involved installing a small box in the lower level of a home. This box is tamper-proof, and takes regular samples of the air. It measures the radon content of the samples. After 48 hours, the box is removed, a report is generated, and the average amount of radon can be calculated. We recently provided a blog post that details the process here

Our clients have worked with Madison Radon Testing, and have found them to be honest, efficient and reliable.
