Comprehensive Radon Inspection Services for Local Homebuyers

An info graphic showing the ways that radon gas enters the home.

When purchasing a home in the Chicago, Illinois, area, nothing is more important than ensuring the property is safe for you and your family. A home inspection with a qualified company will help to identify some of the most common health and safety issues. However, it’s important to understand that many services, such as radon inspection, aren’t a standard part of the home inspection process. Fortunately, you’ve found Pinnacle Property Inspection Services. As a local, family-owned company, we offer radon inspection along with a variety of other specialty services to ensure you have all the information you need to make a wise home-buying decision.

Why It’s Important to Have a Radon Gas Test?

Radon is a naturally occurring gas produced from the breakdown of uranium in soil and rocks deep underground. It is generally harmless in outdoor environments; however, when it is allowed to concentrate within homes, it can have deadly consequences. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that radon accounts for around 21,000 deaths from lung cancer each year.

Radon levels can vary widely from place to place, even within the same community. By hiring a radon testing company to perform an inspection, you can have peace of mind knowing that your home is safe. If unsafe levels of radon are detected, you can opt to drop out of the purchase or request the installation of a radon mitigation system that will effectively bring radon gas to safe levels.

“I spent 3 years building a new home...before signing off with the builder I thought it would be a good idea to have it professionally inspected. Jim and Pinnacle had come highly recommended to me so I gave them a call. Jim was punctual, more thorough than I ever expected, and quite informative. In short, he was a massive help in identifying items I needed to resolve with my builder prior to closing, on top of all being one of the most professional trades I worked with during my project...THANKS!”

“After having a home inspection done by Pinnacle, you realize just how inept every other inspection company really is. From drone pictures of your property to infrared imaging showing you the heat/cold area of your insulated windows, they'll do it all for the same price you'll pay having some knuckle-head to come out and tell you a bunch of garbage. Money well spent when you're making the biggest investment of your life!”

“I hired Pinnacle to inspect a property we were looking to purchase and rehab. The booking process was simple and they came to inspect the property the next business day. They were extremely through and honest about the state of house. There was major issues we had not budgeted for, in the end this inspection led us to move away from this house. I believe that hiring Pinnacle saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars. I'm grateful for their help!”
