A 2 Z HOME INSPECTIONS Reviews (1)
Review: Just purchased above named residence in Aug. 2013, [redacted] Realtor provided us with A2Z Inspection to process all our inspections for this home purchase. There was a Radon Test performed by A2Z Inspections on 7/18/13 , which resulted in a 2.3pCi/L Level. We decided to re-check our Radon Level in Sept. 2013, and [redacted] Radon Analysis Report dated 9/28/13 states the Radon Level in our home is 18.0pCi/L. We would have firstly, never agreed to purchase this property with this Radon Level present! [redacted] Realty and A2Z Inspections were well aware that purchase of this property was based on NO RADON DETECTED ABOVE 4pCi/L. This was our first priorty. Once we received the [redacted] Report we immediately contacted the EPA and in return, was advised that A2Z Inspections (owner: [redacted]) is not certified to perform Radon Tests in the state of Pa. **. [redacted] falsely represented himself as Pa. Certified to conduct this Radon Test. Now, three months later, we are facing Radon Levels from 14.7 to 21.1pCi/L, which the EPA highly recommends that a remediation system(s) be installed in home as this causes a serious health risk (lung cancer). EPA states anything 4.0pCi/L or higher is a health risk. We are now awaiting estimates for Radon Remediation from three approved EPA Contractors. Our first estimate is a minimum of $2,800 with an added electrical cost of $300+ annually for fans to run 24/7, 365 days a year. We are awaiting two more estimates for Remediation on our new home. We live in a cement slab rancher, with a partial crawl space on addition to home. This requires two separate remediation systems to be placed in home. This also requires that the Remediation companies will have to drill holes inside our home which will cause damage to ceramic tile and hardwood flooring. After placement of these two remediation systems, the contractor will re-test radon levels. If levels are not acceptable, there may be more holes drilled and additional system may have to be placed in our home at added expense.Desired Settlement: Full compensation of all costs related to Radon Remediation for our home, which includes all costs for repairs necessary to floors, walls and any other damages that we may incur during placement of Remediation System.
Also, the unforeseen electrical bill cost to run this system 24/7 for the remainder of years we reside in this property.
