So far we’ve learned a bit about what radon is and why it’s a good idea to test your home for elevated radon levels. Now we’ll take a look to see what the testing procedures are.
Radon levels change from hour to hour, so I want to first eliminate a common misconception: a home does not have a specific radon level. It is not as if your home, once tested, will remain at that same level if tested later. During our testing we get readings every hour, and the readings show trends and movements, which is why it is very important to take radon levels according to EPA testing protocol to get a good idea of the overall radon level.
