Radon Testing

Radon is an invisible, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that poses significant health risks, including lung cancer. According to the EPA’s Assessment of Risks from radon in Homes, radon exposure is linked to approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths annually. This hazardous gas is found across the U.S. and can infiltrate any building, including homes, offices, and schools, leading to dangerous levels of exposure. In Alexandria, VA, the only way to ensure your home is safe is through a specialized Radon Test. The EPA and Surgeon General strongly recommend testing homes below the third floor for radon. For reliable and accurate results, it’s essential to use the services of a licensed and certified radon inspector rather than relying on store-bought DIY kits. Don’t wait until it’s too late—schedule a licensed and certified Radon Inspection with Top Down Home Inspections and protect your family from this silent danger.

What Others Have To Say...

"Dallas was absolutely phenomenal. As first-time home buyers who don't know that much about what to look out for or how much we should be concerned about certain things, we bombarded him with questions about every detail he included, and he thoroughly addressed every single one of our concerns. We felt much, much better after speaking to him, and got all the information we needed to make an informed decision.

Friends and family who have purchased homes have told us that they paid much more for inspections that were much less thorough than the one Dallas performed—meaning we got better service for a lower price. His extensive report included details and pictures of absolutely everything—large and small—that we should be aware of, and he took a full hour to walk us through every page of his report line by line. He also made it clear that he is available and eager to help us with any other questions we run into going forward.

I would enthusiastically recommend Dallas to anyone who needs a home inspection, and we would happily work with him again if we need help in the future. Buying your first home is a very stressful process, and he has easily been one of the best people we have worked with throughout it."

"Dallas was our inspector. He was very thorough in his work and explained to us in-detail about the whole process step-by-step and what he was looking for. He was very transparent with every detail and made the whole inspection process very easy and efficient. The final report was highly detailed and really helps us to get a good idea of the condition of the new house we bought as well as what we should tackle in terms of repairs and upgrades for our new home. Would highly recommend his service and if we ever need an inspector again in the future, we know to reach out to Dallas!"

"Definitely 5 stars! Working with Dallas was great. He did a thorough job identifying the areas that needed attention in the home that my client was buying. After he was finished with the inspection, Dallas summarized the overall condition of the home. He then sent a detailed report within 24 hours my client and I. He was extremely informative. I would work with him again."

"Dallas was super quick in coming to my home for a next day inspection of water damage I had in my home. He worked me into his schedule last minute to provide excellent and professional recommendations on where the water leak could be coming from and more importantly where it isn't coming from. Honest and to the point feedback. Will be using him on future home purchases for inspections and will be referring him to family and friends."

"Very impressed by Top down home Inspections, top to bottom. They worked in perfect coordination with our realtor and scheduled the inspection quickly. The reports we received were incredibly thorough (and timely), with a host of recommendations. Dallas, our inspector, walked my fiancé and I through the inspection report, patiently responding to our questions in language that we two very unhandy people could understand. By far the best company I have ever done business with."

"Top Down Homes, Dallas McVicker, offers thorough, quality home inspections. He takes the time to explain all issues - those that they should be aware of for future and those they should be concerned with now, without being an alarmist. He also spends time showing them everything they need to know about the home, so they can care for their home appropriately. I recommend Top Down Inspections to all of my clients!"
