How often should I test my home for radon?

The EPA recommends that homeowners test their homes for radon at least once every two years, even if previous tests have shown low levels of radon. Testing is especially important if you have made structural changes to your home, such as adding a basement or altering the foundation.

What is radon, and why is it a concern for homeowners?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is formed by the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It can seep into homes and buildings through cracks and other openings in the foundation, and long-term exposure to elevated levels of radon can increase the risk of lung cancer.
