Testing your home is the only way to know if radon levels are high. You and your family could be at risk for lung cancer from radon.

When to Test Your Home
You should test your home’s radon levels
  • If it’s never been tested or radon levels are unknown
  • When preparing to buy or sell
  • Before and after any renovations, especially after making any repairs to reduce radon levels
  • Before making any lifestyle changes in the home that would cause someone to spend more time in the basement or lower level (like converting a basement to a bedroom)

Once you have your kit:

  • Follow all instructions carefully. This will include placing a small measuring device in your basement or the lowest level of your home, raised three feet off the ground, in the middle of the room.
  • If your home is in a multi-unit building, you can test your unit by placing the device in the lowest level within your unit.
  • Leave it there for the amount of time instructed. Short-term testing can take 2–90 days and long-term testing takes more than 90 days. The exact length of time for testing depends on the specific test.
  • Once the test is completed, follow the directions on the test kit packaging to find out where to send the device to get the results.
