Exploring the Radon Issue
Earlier this week one of the principal real estate brokers of the largest firm in Burlington suggested that my company’s Radon Addendum “incorrectly states that 2 pCi/L is the US EPA recommended acceptable level for radon. The actual level recommended by the US EPA is 4.0 pCi/L.”
I would understand if a junior agent made such a comment but for a principal of the largest local firm to make such a statement stunned me. Here is language directly from the EPA’s website: “EPA recommends that Americans consider fixing their homes when the radon level is between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L.”
Clearly the EPA does not think that 4pCi/L is an acceptable radon level and our Radon Addendum correctly states the EPA’s position.
I urge all real estate professionals to educate themselves so that they know of what they speak. To learn more about EPA’s radon regulations, click here.
