EPA RECOMMENDS:

If you are helping your clients in buying or selling a 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.

A home needs to be fixed if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (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.

*Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA’s 2003 Assessment

If you are testing in a real estate transaction and you need results quickly, short term testing option is acceptable in determining whether the home should be mitigated.

 

ShortTerm Testing Options

Passive:

The radon specialist will take two short-term tests at the same time in the same location for at least 48 hours.

 

If test result is 4 pCi/L or more…….. property needs to be mitigated and re- tested.
