Radon Testing in Homes and Buildings

What We Can Do For You

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Encourages all Homeowners to Test for Radon Gas Concentration

Radon gas is an invisible, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert radioactive gas. It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water. It tends to collect in basements or lower levels in homes and buildings because it is approximately 7.5 times heavier than air.

The EPA has linked exposure to radon gas to an increased chance of developing lung cancer, and as ranked radon exposure as the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the US, behind smoking.

Radon testing is the only way to effectively know if your home or property has a higher than average radon concentration of 4.0 pCi/L or higher. It can be found in all 50 states.

Types of Radon Tests
Cost for testing radon gas varies depending on the option you choose.
All are designed to give an accurate measurement of radon gas in your home or property.

DIY Radon Test Kit (short and long term)

Radon test kit(s) can be bought at local hardware stores or ordered over the internet. Radon kits come with step-by-step instructions to prepare/set test and mail to lab for direct results. A radon kit cost ($30+) is a fraction of a Certified Radon Test. Radon tests typically take 2-4 days for short-term and a long-term radon test can be left in place for one month to a year.

Digital Radon Monitor

Digital monitor unit measures radon levels short-term and long-term. Instructions and variations include Bluetooth connection to your cell phone. Data can be reset and unit moved to a different location to give the radon level. Radon monitors ($100-500+) can be bought at local hardware stores or ordered over the internet to be used overtime in different locations.

Certified Radon Test (For Real Estate Contracts)

An independent certified radon technician (from Boulder Edge or Second-Party referral) will ensure test ($150+) is set according to National Radon Proficiency Program (AARST-NRPP) and with the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). Technician returns to pick-up and report analysis.

Regardless of which radon test approach you choose, EPA recommends the radon level be reduced to below 4.0 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). Because there is no known safe level of exposure to radon, EPA also recommends that Americans consider radon mitigation for their home if radon levels are between 2.0 pCi/L and 4.0 pCi/L.
