What is Radon?
To learn more about the dangers of radon, chemical symbol Radon, speak with one of our experienced professionals.
Radon testing in any building requires an expert since radon levels inside a building can change on a daily basis. The highest levels are often found during the hottest months. Changes in weather, use of furnaces or fireplaces, and the opening and closing of windows and doors are some factors that can cause radon levels to vary.
Short-term test kits provide the quickest results. These kits remain in the building from two to 90 days, depending on the device. The test must be conducted for at least 48 hours. Because radon levels tend to vary throughout the year, a short-term test is less likely to give year-round average results.
If you are doing a short-term test, close all windows and outside doors and keep them closed as much as possible during the test. If testing for only two or three, be sure to close the windows and outside doors at least 12 hours before the beginning of the test. Tests should not be conducted during unusually severe storms or periods of extreme high winds. Additional testing is usually recommended to better record the average radon level in a home, and long-term tests are often recommended.
Long-term tests remain in a home for longer than 90 days. A long-term test gives a reading for the building’s year-round average radon levels. Because of season variations in radon concentration levels, the closer a long-term test measurement is to 365 days, the more accurate it will be of annual average radon levels.
