Radon Testing (Air)

What is Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless and therefore cannot be detected by our senses.  Radon is a health threat because the gas can accumulate in your home which could result in cause lung cancer. 

The set Action Level with the EPA is 4.0 pCi/L.  Because there are no safe levels of radon, it's recommended that a home be corrected for levels between 2.0 – 4.0 pCi/L. Radon can occur anywhere, even a home located in a low risk area can accumulate gas above the EPA Action Level.

When should you test your home for radon:

  • During Real Estate transactions for those buying an existing or new home.

  • If you have had your home tested and levels were found to be between 2.0 – 4.0 piC/L  you may want to consider testing your home again as radon levels can fluctuate.

  • To ensure the effectiveness of any existing radon mitigation system(s), having your home retested every two years is recommended.

  • If you are adding any additions or if there are any type of structural changes in your home, it's recommended that your home be tested for radon. Note: Structural changes may allow different air pathways to form which would allow radon to enter the home more easily.
