Charge for Charcoal Canisters in a Multi Family

(Matt Sisk) #1

Hi all,

Can you give me some advice on how much to charge for a 300+ apartment building for placing charcoal canisters? The canisters are $48. What is the recommended percentage above that for performing the test?

thanks in advance!

Who the hell are you paying $48 to? That is outrageous! I don’t pay that including O/nite return shipping!

ANSI Standards have been published for radon testing and mitigation of single-family homes, multi-family residences and large buildings. I recommend anyone who is testing or mitigating professionally to become familiar with these and follow them. There also may be state requirements for professional radon testing or mitigation of large properties. I am not an attorney, but if published standards are not followed without justification or explanation, I would think you may be responsible for additional work, or even damages, in the event of a a dispute.

Access to ANSI Radon Standards is available through membership in AARST.
They also may be purchased here Radon Testing Standards.

Hope this helps,

My typical cost is $350 for mold inspections. I use the Zefron air pump though.
