Radon & Air Testing
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer.
You can’t see or smell radon. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. Radon can have a big impact on indoor air quality.
Scientists estimate that 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year are related to radon.
What does EPA recommend?
A house should be checked for radon gas every two years even if a mitigation system is present.
If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested for radon.
For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested.
Fix the home if the radon level is 4 (pCi/L) or higher.
Radon levels less than 4 (pCi/L) still pose a risk, and in many cases, may be reduced.
Take steps to prevent device interference when conducting a radon test.
