How do I prepare for a radon test?

You must maintain Closed House Conditions for 12 hours before you start the test, as well as during the entire test (which lasts at least 48 hours).

Radon levels fluctuate constantly. By maintaining these conditions, you will stabilize the radon levels in your home & ensure an accurate test result. Your test kit will include all of the information you need, but in short:

  • Keep exterior doors (& garage doors) closed as much as possible
  • Keep all windows shut
  • Don't use fireplaces, swamp coolers, or window fans
  • Keep the internal house temperate between 65 - 80 degrees (F)
  • Limit the use of clothes dryers, kitchen range hoods, and bathroom fans
