Q. When do we receive the radon report?

At the completion of the test, the monitor is returned to our office where the information is downloaded. A report is immediately prepared and mailed to our client.
  Back to FAQs
Q. When will we receive the carbon monoxide report?
A. We perform two types of carbon monoxide (CO) tests: a long term test and a grab test. The grab test uses a Bachrach Monoxor II which samples CO concentrations in and around the heating equipment. The results of this test are available immediately. Our continuous monitors sample CO similarly to radon. As with radon, the results of this test is mailed to our client immediately after the 48 hour test is done.
