Additional Notes

Complaint: ****** ****** of *********** Engineering Services handled my home inspection, including the radon air test. Based on his report, the radon device was used for only 44 hours. The EPA minimum standard duration for radon air testing is 48 hours (http://www.epa.gov/radon/pubs/hmbyguid.html#3.b.). I contacted Mr. ****** several times about this and he repeatedly stated that "it's okay" even though I told him about the EPA guidelines. He responded by saying that there are "pages and pages" of EPA standards, but was unable to pinpoint exactly where in his documents of the EPA standards it stated that 44 hours was acceptable, even though on the EPA's own website, 48 hours is stated. He offered no recompense for not meeting these minimum standards.Radon air testing is a health concern. The full home inspection includes a radon air test and this test was not completed to meet minimum federal guidelines. Product_Or_Service: Home radon air test as part of home inspection Account_Number: Customer number: ***

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Other (requires explanation) Another radon air test for the full 48 hours or a refund for the radon air test.

Business Response: Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/04/25) */ I have been communicating with Mr. ****** about his concerns with the radon test for some days. I assumed he was seeking information about the test and procedures and was attempting to answer his questions. The first I knew of his desire for a re-test or refund was when I received this complaint. I made arrangements to do a second test for Mr. ****** at no charge. The results were consistent with the first test and Mr. ****** has indicated to me that he is satisfied.
