Why Do You Need to Test for Radon?
Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.
Nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more).
EPA and the Surgeon General Recommend all Homes should be tested
If you decide that a new test is needed, discuss it with the seller as
soon as possible. If you decide to use a qualified radon tester, you may
contact the EPA office serving Kansas and Miami to obtain a copy of
their approved list of radon testing companies.
