Short-term testing is recommended for a first-time test. If the result of your first test was below 2.0 pCi/L, no further action is required. For test results between 2.0 pCi/L and 8.0 pCi/L you should conduct either a short-term (3 to 7 days) or a long-term follow-up measurement (90 days to one year) before making a mitigation decision. A short-term follow-up measurement is recommended when your first test is over 8.0 pCi/L due to the additional health risks associated with very-high radon concentrations.
When testing your home for radon be sure to carefully follow the test device instructions. The following EPA radon testing protocols must also be followed for accurate radon measurement:
Important - Failure to follow test device instructions will invalidate your test.
Please contact us if you have any questions about your radon test device or radon measurement protocol.
Radon Testing and Mitigation Are Not Mandatory in the State of Minnesota. However, this radon information notice and warning statement must be provided to home buyers at the time of purchase - “The Minnesota Department of Health strongly recommends that ALL home buyers have an indoor radon test performed prior to purchase or taking occupancy, and recommends having the radon levels mitigated if elevated radon concentrations are found. Elevated radon concentrations can easily be reduced by a qualified, certified, or licensed, if applicable, radon mitigator. Every buyer of any interest in residential real property is notified that the property may present exposure to dangerous levels of indoor radon gas that may place the occupants at risk of developing radon-induced lung cancer. Radon, a Class A human carcinogen, is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause overall. The seller of any interest in residential real property is required to provide the buyer with any information on radon test results of the dwelling.”
