You may do testing yourself or hire a firm or individual to do the testing. If a firm is hired we recommend they be in the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) or the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP). If you do the testing yourself, purchase a radon measurement device listed by EPA's Radon Measurement Proficiency Program and follow the directions to the letter. Passive testing for radon is very easy and simple. Contact us if you have any questions on sampling. If you hire someone to test, the following checklist may be useful:

Testing Checklist

Follow this checklist carefully so that you get the most accurate radon test results. Radon testing is not a complicated process, but must be done properly. Otherwise, the test results may not be accurate and more testing may have to be done. Disturbing or interfering with the test device or closed-house conditions will invalidate the test results. The seller, or a NRPP or state certified tester, should be able to confirm that all the items in this checklist have been followed. If the tester cannot confirm this, another test should be taken.
