Do I have radon in my home?
In a residential and commercial environment, radon testing with proper equipment is essential to ensure you are not being affected. The EPA and the US Surgeon General recommend homes and businesses be tested for radon levels every 2 years. Luckily, radon testing in Kansas City is easy and inexpensive.
Testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels. There are no immediate symptoms that will alert you to the presence of radon. It typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface.
There are multiple EPA approved testing devices that can be used for different lengths of testing time. These tests could be short term, long term, or CRM.
Short-term tests generally last between 2 – 90 days. This is typically provided for a real estate transaction. The benefit of a short-term test is that you are able to get results quickly. However, the downside is it is not the most accurate because radon levels vary throughout the year. A long-term test will provide you with more accurate results with a time frame of greater than 90 days.
Long term testing devices would be the most accurate. As a result, it would give an overall average radon exposure throughout the full year. In contrast, a CRM device will give you hourly intervals during the 48 hour period.
While there are do it yourself options available, the EPA recommends hiring a professionals like Radon 411. Some of the test kit options you purchase from local hardware stores have hidden lab and postage fees. As a result, this can compare closely to what Radon 411 could offer for professional service.
