Welcome to NACHI.

I perform Radon tests. I utilize charcoal canisters. I leave them on site for 48 hours, inform my client how to seal the canisters when they pick them up. They, in turn, deliver my postage-paid Radon package to the local post office, which gets delivered to a local certified Lab near my home. I receive all Radon results (by fax) within 24 hours of lab delivery.

Radon testing procedures will vary depending on your State regulations. Testing procedures will also vary according to areas.

I just completed my radon testing training and was interested as to what fees are being charged to perform testing.
