Radon Testing, It is not a Real Estate Issue, It’s a Health Issue

Whether your home is in Pittsford, NY, Victor, NY, Penfield, NY, Williamson, NY, Farmington, NY or Rochester, NYitshould be tested for radon. In fact, according to The World Health Organization, The U.S. Surgeon General, The Environmental Protection Agency and State Health Departments all homes should be evaluated, no matter where you live.

Radon exposure is the second-leading cause of death from lung cancer in the United States. Radon is invisible and completely undetectable without special equipment.Central Real Estate Inspections performs radon testing using the most up to date continuous monitors, which are sophisticated, electronic instruments that collect data hourly and are equipped with tamper detectors.

We are One of the few that are Nationally Certified in Radon testing.


The licensed home inspector from Central Real Estate Inspections will spend two to three hours thoroughly inspecting and evaluating the property. The roof will be fully inspected, and when possible, your inspector will walk the roof. Your inspector will crawl through crawl spaces, spend time in the basement checking the foundation, furnace, plumbing, electrical system, and all the elements in-between. As the inspector works their way through the interior of the home, they will be assessing all the windows, doors and outlets that they have access to. In the end, you will have a comprehensive home inspection and property report that will give you a clear picture of the home from the inside out.

Our property reports are electronic with digital photographs and a detailed summary. We don’t make you wait. For your convenience, you will receive your home inspection and property report within 24 hours of the completed inspection.

If you’re new to the home buying process, you should attend the residential inspection from start to finish. The inspector will tell you what needs maintenance or repairs, and why. This Is also a great time to ask questions about your new home, take measurements, and have friends and relatives see your new place for the first time.

“All homes have problems, but every house is a great house for the right person at the right price.” We at Central Real Estate Inspections will help you make that determination.
