Your chance to find out just how much radioactive gas is lurking inside your home. Because no matter where you live, radon gas will live there too. There is no way to be 100% free of it.
So the question becomes... "Okay, well then how much of it am I living with in my house?"
And maybe a second question would be... "Well how much of this radioactive gas can I handle before it starts to harm me?"
Before we answer those questions however, we first need to tell you about Susan and Ashley - two middle aged, married women with families.
You see both of them have something in common. Something unfortunate for them, but an eye opener for everyone else.
A tragedy for these two individuals and their families, yet a new revelation and appreciation for those who learned from it.
These two otherwise healthy individuals with no bad habits, like smoking for example, were diagnosed with lung cancer. It grew and spread throughout their whole body. The battle was long and rough, but the cancer was too strong and they both passed away as a result.
The other coincidence you see, was that each one lived in a house (2 very different houses), which both got tested for radon following their passing. It was revealed that, at the time, both houses contained incredibly high radon concentrations - over 10,000 Bq/m3 or roughly 271 pCi/L.
Again, they were otherwise healthy people who didn't smoke a day in their lives, but yet they died because a radioactive gas, that we cannot see, touch, hear or feel, gave them aggressive cancer.
So if you don't know what radon is or if you have never heard of it before, this is your chance to learn more about it. Our DIY Radon Test Kit includes information about where radon gas comes from, what you can do to protect yourself from its harmful effects and much, much more.

Where should a radon test be placed?
The idea is to measure the radon concentration on the lowest livable part of your house. Therefore, if your basement is the lowest livable area, then place it in your basement. If your basement is not suitable for living or spending significant time, then do not place the radon detector in the basement. If you have a basement AND a crawlspace, we recommend placing a second radon detector on the floor directly above the crawlspace area.
Radon exists in every single home everywhere. Radon gas is caused by the breakdown of uranium deep in the ground. It finds it way up through the ground and into your home through any crack, hole, gap, pit, or penetration through the foundation that it can find. It will build up in your home over time, so it's important to measure the radon concentration in your home.
Where is radon most commonly found?
Radon can be found in every house, warehouse, apartment building, condo, office building, or any type of building for that matter. Radon concentrations are the highest in the lowest level of the building, which is commonly the basement; however, if you have a crawlspace, your radon levels will most likely be the highest in the crawlspace.
How do you detect radon in your home?
Radon can be detected using an alpha track detector like the one included in this radon test kit, or you can use a continuous radon monitor, which is an electronic device, to constantly monitor the radon concentration in your home.
What does radon smell like?
Unfortunately, radon has no smell. Also, you cannot see, hear, taste or feel radon. The only way to detect radon is by using a radon detector.
How many radon test kits do I need?
Under normal circumstances, you only need one radon test per house. Under rare circumstances you may need 2 or even 3 radon detectors. If your house is abnormal, or if you have a crawlspace, send us an email and describe it - email@example.com
How often should you test for radon?
The authorities recommend testing your house every 5 years.
How long does a radon test take?
Our short-term radon test take at least 10 days and no longer than 90 days. Our long-term test take at least 90 days to a year.
