Protect Your Loved Ones With A Radon Test
From Nordic Inspections

Dependable, Reputable and Accurate Testing Services

Welcome to Radon Testing Services by Nordic Inspections! Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that forms from the decay of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, making it imperceptible without proper testing. Radon can enter buildings through cracks in the foundation, gaps around pipes, or other openings, accumulating to potentially harmful levels indoors.

Radon testing is crucial for identifying and mitigating the risks associated with radon exposure. Testing typically involves placing specialized detectors in the lowest livable areas of a building for a specified period. These detectors measure radon activity over time, providing valuable data about indoor radon concentrations.

The significance of radon testing stems from its association with lung cancer. Prolonged exposure to elevated radon levels increases the risk of developing lung cancer, particularly among smokers. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the recommended action level for radon is 4.0 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). However, both the World Health Organization (WHO) and Health Canada advocate for a lower action level of 2.7 pCi/L, reflecting the more conservative approach to radon exposure.

In our area of Fargo, ND, and Moorhead, MN, radon levels can be elevated due to various geological factors. The region’s soil composition, as well as the prevalence of certain rock types containing uranium, contribute to higher radon concentrations in indoor environments. Additionally, building practices, such as well-insulated and tightly sealed structures, can exacerbate radon accumulation by reducing ventilation and airflow.

As of January 2019, the state of Minnesota (MN) requires that any radon professional conducting radon testing in (MN) must be licensed with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

Nordic Inspections has 4 licensed professionals for radon testing services which can be viewed here –

MN requires licensed radon professionals to submit detailed quarterly reports, proof of continued education, and use calibrated equipment.

Other MN requirements may raise some questions to buyers, and sellers of homes in MN. The following are some of the requirements of the MDH.

Non-interference agreement

MN now requires the licensed radon measurement technicians to make a reasonable effort to verbally and in writing to inform the clients of the required test conditions, the individuals responsible for the property is required to sign a non-interference agreement that indicates knowledge of the testing conditions, and the willingness to cooperating in maintaining the required test conditions.

Closed building conditions

Short-term measurements of two- or-three days in length, the property must have closed-building conditions a minimum of 12-hours before the radon test begins.

If closed house conditions were not met when test was activated the test period must be extended 12 hours, and the average of the test results shall exclude the first 12 hours of the test.

Duplicate Tests

MN requires a duplicate test for every 10th radon test conducted. So that means a second monitor must be placed 4-8” away from the first monitor in these instances. Both test results must be read and reported to the client, and the results of those two tests must be averaged for the official reading.

More monitors are due to different foundation types

MN requires one radon monitor placed for each foundation type. If a home has a traditional basement, a crawlspace and a slab-on-grade addition that is part of the home, that home will need to have three radon monitors placed, and three test results are given to our client. One for the basement, a second in the finished space above the crawl space, and a third for the slab-on-grade room. This change will not affect most homes, but for homes that have had additions and remodels, it may very well mean several tests being placed at the same time.

Nordic Inspections caters to real estate transactions when preforming radon testing. We give quick turnaround, with 48-hour testing, and we use continuous electronic monitors that give an hour-by-hour breakdown of the test results, we are NRPP certified, and an independent third party.
