Picture
There’s been a lot of talk about radon this month as November is designated as Lung Cancer Awareness Month. As you know from my previous posts, I’m a big advocate of radon testing, especially after I found out our home has high levels of radon (which we’re in the process of mitigating – we’ll share more about that soon).

Local NBC affiliate KSN aired a great story last week about the importance and need for radon tests. In addition to informing people what radon is, where it comes from, and why radon is dangerous, it touched on the two types of radon tests: do-it-yourself kits and professional tests from a certified radon technician (like myself).

Here’s a breakdown of the differences so you can choose the best test for you:


Do-It-Yourself radon tests



Often referred to as charcoal kits, you can purchase them at most home improvement stores

Set it up in the home and after 72 hours, mail it to a laboratory out of state for results


Results take approximately 5 to 10 days to receive, depending on where the lab is located


User is responsible for correct set up as well as correct monitoring and sending to lab


Cost about $9 to purchase and about $10-$15 to overnight to the lab


Results do not qualify to be used in a Kansas real estate transaction
Tests by a certified radon technician

Professional-grade radon measurement test. I use a Sun Nuclear 1028 Continuous Radon Monitor calibrated annually

Machine is set up in the home for 48 hours of continuous monitoring. Machine takes a reading once every hour. Results available immediately       

Radon technician can send results immediately. Results include graphs as well as highest, lowest, and average levels of radon during testing period

A state-trained and certified technician is responsible for performing test correctly

Cost about $100

When completed by a certified radon technician, these are the only results that legally qualify to be used in a Kansas real estate transaction.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer so safety is the #1 priority. No matter which test you choose, I encourage everyone to test for radon. If you're interested to know radon results immediately, give me a call or text to make an appointment.

It has multiple uses and should run continuously, night and day, to keep things inside it fresh and cold.

I like how you talk about how professional radon testing will give you detailed graphs immediately and only cost about $100. My husband and I are going to be having a baby in a few months and we want to make sure everything is safe for him -- including detecting any dangerous elements in the air -- and we've just been wondering if we should use a professional or do it ourselves. Now that I know that the graphs will be much more detailed, I think we'll definitely hire a radon testing company to help us detect this dangerous substance.
