If radon testing in your home is something that you want to do, choose one of the two main ways to do so. Don’t forget to conduct all tests in the lowest livable area of your home that you use regularly eight to ten hours per week.
Short-Term Radon Test
After testing radon levels for two to seven days, mail your testing kits to a lab to get results processed. You can buy short-term radon tests at your local hardware store.
Long-Term Radon Test
For a more accurate reading, a long-term test measures radon levels from anywhere between 90 days and a year. Since radon levels can vary as the year passes, you get a better reading of what you can expect in the years to come.
Testing radon levels in your house can help to prevent sickness and keep your family healthy for years to come.
