Does Your Home Have Radon?
If you read our page about radon gas, you may become aware that radon exposure is a serious issue. And the only way to tell if you and your family are at risk is to conduct a simple test.
There are many factors that will determine whether your home is more likely to test positive for radon than the rest of your neighborhood. Each home is unique with regard to soil conditions, how radon enters the house, and home ventilaton systems. Eventhough your neighbors may test negative for radon, your home may not. The only way to determine your home’s exposure is with a test.

Forty eight hours is the minimum duration for any radon test. The tests are used to determine the potential of a home having elevated levels of radon, independently of how the house is operated. The tests involve closing all windows and doors, except for normal exit and entry, and testing on the lowest livable location in the home. This technique has become the primary method for testing homes, especially for real estate transactions. The results of the test will determine the need for any radon remediation.
A radon gas level of 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) is determined by the EPA as a level that requires remediation. And by using the EPA estimates, and a formula of the total number of homes by the average number of homes with elevated radon, there are most likely 12,000 homes and more in Atlanta alone that have elevated levels of radon. DeKalb, Fulton, Gwinnett and Cobb counties are at highest risk for elevated radon levels.
