Methods Used to Prepare Radon Inspection Cost Estimates
Since radon inspections are straight forward, a flat rate is commonly used. The contractor will discuss the types of testing available and determine the ideal test type for your home. If the radon levels in your home are unsafely high, the inspector may provide you a quote for the radon mitigation work or refer you to another service.

Reasons for Radon Testing Prices Variances
Radon testing services use a combination of methods to evaluate and price projects. They take several factors into consideration that impact the cost of the project, including:
Size of home. Larger homes may require multiple tests, increasing the overall cost of the inspection.
Inspection and mitigation packages. Some radon companies may offer packages that include both the inspection and remediation work. If you already know there are elevated levels of radon in your home, one of these packages may be the less expensive option.
Geography. If you are in a high cost area or in an area that is difficult to reach (more travel time), then costs will generally be higher.
