Nearly half of Minnesota homes have radon levels that pose significant health risks. Is your home one of them?
Don’t leave your family’s health to chance. The only way to know for sure if your home has dangerous levels of radon gas is to perform radon testing.
According to the Minnesota Department of Health, the average Minnesota home contains radon levels that pose the same health risks as smoking about 9 cigarettes a day (4.6 picocuries per liter of air). Minnesota ranks fourth in the nation for high radon levels.
Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers.
Radon testing helps you understand the radon risk your family faces. We offer three radon testing options for your convenience and peace-of-mind:
Radon Test Kits
We sell a variety of EPA-approved radon test kits that you can easily deploy yourself. At the end of the test period, you simply mail the kit to the lab for analysis. These kits produce very reliable results.
A great choice for homeowners that can be used to continuously monitor radon levels. These radon monitors can be used to test multiple locations and give both a long and short-term radon concentration average.
Professional Radon Testing
Our certified experts set up a continuous radon monitor (CRM) in your home. After approximately 48-96 hours, we return to collect the results. This is the most reliable form of testing and gives you a detailed report. This method is used mostly in real estate transactions because of its ability to detect tampering.
Your Home’s Radon Levels Can Change
Just because your home had a low level of radon when you tested it five years ago, doesn’t mean it’s still low today. Radon levels can change over time and even throughout the year. Freezing and thawing, changes to ventilation, and weather conditions can all alter the radon level in your home. We recommend having your home tested at least twice: once in summer and once in winter. We also recommend testing your home every few years to ensure your levels stay low.
Make sure your home is safe. Test your home for radon today.
