Ok, I bet this is going to cause some arguments, but what the heck. What is the personal preference for Radon testing? What is suppose to be the best for the client? Which one is a BS test (if any). Personally, I sub this out to someone who used CRMs. Because of this, I am biased and prefer the CRM. I have an example to share: A CRM was placed in a raised ranch with a basement. The next day, the listing agent (broker-owner of the agency) decided to go into the home and open up all of the windows in the home. The CRM showed a small climb then leveled off until the day the broker opened up the windows, at which point the levels shot up dramatically. When the test was done, the final level was a 5.7 and failed the home. This broker caused the failure by trying to vent the home, causing a negative pressure in the unvented basement. A few months later, the home was retested with the CRM and passed with a 3.1. If it was not for the CRM, we would never have been clued in that the levels started going up at a super quick pace. Let’s not talk about the idiot broker, just about the method of testing.
