A short term radon test is the quickest way to find out how much radon is in your home or one you may plan to buy. A short term test device is placed in the lowest lived or livable level of the home for a minimum of 48 hours. In most cases you will have your results the same day the test device is retrieved from the home. JC Radon Services assures fast and reliable results!
For homes, the EPA recommends that initial radon testing devices be short-term tests placed in the lowest lived in level of your home. Short-term radon testing under closed-building conditions helps to ensure that residents quickly learn if a home contains a very high levels of radon. If you are doing a short-term test close your windows and outside doors and try to keep them closed as much as possible during the testing time. You should not conduct short term radon testing during unusually severe storms or periods of unusually high winds.
