This protocol for this Radon test, in the Real Estate industry is established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): protocols EPA 402-R092-003 and EPA 402-R-92-004.
About Radon Testing, Mitigation & Radon Inspection
The radon test is a 48-hour snapshot of the radon in your home to determine whether your home has concentrations of Radon in excess of 4 pCi/L (4 pico Curies per Liter of air), the EPA’s action level recommending radon reduction. Radon mitigation is any process used to reduce radon gas concentrations in the breathing zones of occupied buildings, or radon from water supplies. Radon is a significant contributor to environmental radioactivity.
In the Kansas City metro area (Jackson County, Missouri and Johnson County, Kansas), and also in a few nearby counties, we are in Zone 1 (please check out this EPA map ink for areas of interest). The soil conditions from the underlying geologic strata in this zone is such that the average indoor Radon screen readings are greater than 4 pCi/L. There are neighborhoods in the Kansas City metro area that are known to typically read in double digit pCi/L. It is common to see Radon mitigation systems in certain neighborhoods, house after house, all in a row!
