There are two basic strategies for performing a radon test:
- Screening: The goal is to use as few tests as possible to screen the home for radon.
- To screen for radon, the goal is to place a test in the location where radon is most likely to be found.
- If that area has a low radon concentration, it is highly likely the rest of the home is safe.
- If that area has an elevated radon concentration, further testing is recommended.
- Exposure: The goal is to determine your exposure to radon and its associated health risks.
- To determine the heath risk, place radon test(s) in location(s) where people regularly spend time.
- Multiple tests are often required.
