Radon exposure varies day to day, month to month in a home. To truly know radon exposure, it’s best to start with a short term test then perform a long term test if desired. The long term radon tests reflect a more accurate picture of exposure to radon.
For most people, the greatest exposure to radon occurs in the home. Radon levels are usually higher in basements, cellars or living spaces in contact with soil. Well-tested, durable and cost-efficient methods exist for preventing radon in new houses and reducing radon in existing dwellings.
Note: EPA recommends you fix your home if the radon level is 4 pCi/L or higher.
According to the EPA, radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. Cancer.gov adds that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Scientists estimate that 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year are related to radon. In fact, the EPA stated, "About 1 in 15 U.S. homes is estimated to have radon levels at or above this EPA action level. Testing your home is the only way to know if you have elevated radon levels."
