Our Review of
EPA's Home Buyer's and Seller's Guide to Radon
Getting a Test
Since the EPA recommends getting a Radon test before putting it on the market, you can decide if you want to DIY Do-it-Yourself or hire a contractor to test your residence. This review of the EPA Guide to Radon has links to DIY Radon Tests on most pages; however, if you want to hire a contractor, which we have never had to do, then there may be additional hoops to jump through.
Since some states require Radon professionals to be licensed, certified or registered, the EPA recommends contacting your state's Radon office to find out how to select a contractor. Since the guide is continually referring to your state's Radon office, we thought it a good thing they list an online source for finding your Radon office; however, the web address of the page is out of date. So, here's a link to the Air Chek list of states. Choose your state, and the State Radon Officer will be on that page, which will also display other Radon info. for your state.
This series is provided to inform about Radon at Lake Tahoe and beyond. On each page, you can view more by clicking on one of the navigation links below.

Airthings gets our glowing review for its line of air quality detectors. In particular, we have used the Airthings Corentium Radon Detector, and like it! We purchased our Airthings Corentium over seven years ago, and it has been reliable and accurate for detecting Radon levels in our home and office. It's definitely recommended for monitoring Radon. Plus, if you ever need to install any Radon mitigation devices, this constant monitoring device can help you to know how well your system is working, in order to keep your home Radon levels down.
