Recommended guideline for radon testing during real estate transactions


A short-term test is a snapshot of radon levels at a given point in time. Radon levels can fluctuate immensely during a short period of time, depending on the weather, ventilation, house-use patterns.  Given this variation, there are very specific testing protocols that are recommended for short-term tests in order to obtain an accurate result.  Our certified radon technician will implement these protocols to ensure an accurate test.


While a short-term test will provide a quick idea of radon levels, it is not recommended to use the results of a short-term test to make mitigation decisions.  A follow-up long-term test is advisable.
