HUD Radon Testing And Mitigation Services
HUD Radon Testing and mitigation is a priority for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) since 2013.
HUD Services From Utah Radon Services
Utah Radon Services specializes in radon testing for HUD multi-family structures as well as radon mitigation for HUD multi-family buildings. Radon testing for multi-family buildings such as apartments or health care facilities require special care and protocols be followed to make sure the radon levels are documented correctly. We also provide free HUD bids for radon mitigation for multi-family units and we have vast experience in installing radon mitigation units in both large and small multi-family buildings.
HUD And Radon
HUD issued a policy in 2013 designated to reduce the number of radon-caused lung cancer deaths in the United States. It requires that all multi-family homes, as well as most FHA-insured construction to be tested for radon and mediated if the level is above 4.0 pCi/L.
Because radon is an invisible, odorless gas is impossible to detect without a radon test. The EPA estimates that is 21,000 people die from radon-induced lung cancer each year, meaning radon is more hazardous than second-hand smoke.
Hud Requires a radon inspection report to be included for all…
- FHA Multifamily Transactions
- Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP)
- Traditional Application Processing (TAP)
The radon inspection report must be prepared by a radon professional who holds certification from the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists National Radon Proficiency Program (AARST NRPP) or the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) as well as holds the applicable state licenses where required.
Tenants, landlords, construction companies, and buyers of FHA-insured new constructions should always test radon in their buildings. Our HUD-approved radon experts can perform radon testing and mitigation to ensure your environment is healthy.
In January 2017, HUD released new standards for radon testing/mitigation for all new loan applications, as well as other transactional requests for existing Section 232 projects for residential care/assisted living facilities. Similar to the requirements for multi-family homes and most FHA-insured construction, these new Lean 232 requirements state that a radon report must be provided (barring a few exceptions) and that the report must be signed and certified as to its compliance with the requirements by a radon professional certified with either the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) or The National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). All radon testing and mitigation must be performed by an AARST or NRSB Radon Professional.
