What Radon Test Kit to Use?

Wondering which radon test kit to get?

There are two main types:

  • Short-term 
  • Long-term

Let’s see which one is right for you.

Short-term Radon Tests

If you are testing for the first time, start with a short-term test. These test kits are exposed for 3 to 7 days and then sent to a lab for analysis. The lab then sends a report that has the average radon concentration. We’ll give you a call to explain what the the radon level means to you and your family and recommend next steps.

We use Airchek radon test kits for most of our post mitigation radon tests.

 

Long-term Radon Tests

These are typically used after doing a short-term radon test when levels are between 2 and 8 pCi/L. Alpha Track radon test kits are exposed for 3 to 12 months. The lab then sends a report that has the average radon concentration. We’ll give you a call to explain what the the radon level means to you and your family and recommend next steps.

A long-term test is a great way to see what your radon levels average over different seasons.

 
These are two of the five radon testing options we have for you. They are the cheapest way to test your radon levels.
