Follow the EPA Radon Testing Guidelines to easily determine if your home has radon.

You can’t see radon, but it’s not hard to find out if you have a radon problem in your home. All you need to do is test for radon. Just follow the simple 3-step EPA Radon Testing Guidelines. Testing is easy and should only take a few minutes of your time.

The EPA Recommends the Following Radon Testing Steps

Step 1. Take a short-term test. If your result is 4pCi/L or higher, take a followup test (Step2) to be sure.

Step 2. Follow up with either a long-term test or a second short-term test:

  • For a better understanding of your year-round average radon level, take a long-term test.
  • If you need results quickly, take a second short-term test. The higher your initial short-term test result, the more certain you can be that you should take a short-term rather than a long-term follow up test.

If your first short-term test result is more than twice EPA’s 4 pCi/L action level, you should take a second short-term test immediately.

Step 3. Take action!

  • If you followed up with a long-term test: Fix your home if your long term test result is 4pCi/L or more.
  • If you followed up with a second short-term test: The higher your short-term results, the more certain you can be that you should fix your home. Consider fixing your home if the average of your first and second test is 4 pCi/L or higher.
