Each home is unique with regard to soil conditions, how radon enters the house, and home ventilaton systems. So 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.

Learn How to Detect Radon Gas

A simple test kit is all you need to detect radon gas. 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. Typically, the tests involve closing all windows and doors, except for normal exit and entry, and testing on the lowest livable location in the home, most often the basement. This procedure has become the primary method for testing homes, especially for real estate transactions, and 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 homeowners in DeKalb, Fulton, Gwinnett and Cobb counties are at highest risk for elevated radon levels; see the GA radon map.
