Organized jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Institute of Standards (NIS) and other federal agencies, the ADVANCING HEALTHY HOUSING initiative has identified radon testing and radon mitigation as major priorities in improving the healthfulness and safety of our nation’s housing.

Newly-established HUD guidelines recommend testing all units in a multifamily building to ensure that no resident is exposed to hazardous radon levels. If you are applying for HUD-backed financing or refinancing for a multi-family building, you must have a radon test performed by a radon professional and provide proof of radon mitigation if necessary.

Maine Radon & Environmental specializes in radon testing for apartment buildings, condos, townhouses and other multi-family properties in Maine.

If you are concerned about the radon levels in your building, contact us today to have your multi-family building tested.

What types of HUD mortgages require radon testing?

  • Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP)
  • Traditional Application Processing
  • New construction or substantial rehabilitation of multifamily housing
  • Purchase or refinance of existing multifamily rental housing

Why is radon testing important?

Special equipment is needed to detect the presence of radon gas. In the U.S., exposure to radioactive radon gas causes some 21,000 deaths every year. Most of these deaths could be prevented by testing residences for radon and by installing radon abatement systems in homes that test above the actionable level of 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) of interior air. If the radon levels in your building are found to be above the actionable level, we offer radon mitigation for HUD buildings to effectively reduce radon levels.
