Testing Your Home

diva_cutout_500Know, with confidence, that your family is safe from radon.

The recommended action level set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is 4.0 pCi/L and above. The EPA has found nearly 1 out of 15 homes in the United States to have radon levels above this action level.

It doesn’t matter if the home is old or new construction, or if it is well maintained or under maintained. High radon levels can be found in any type of home. Know, with confidence, that your family is safe from radon.

Radon gas can be detected through a simple, low cost test and should take only a few minutes of your time.

When scheduling your radon test, a Radon Diva team member will walk you through the testing process, including the few simple steps that need to be taken prior to the beginning of the radon testing period.

New in 2013! There have been updates to Ohio’s Radon Rules that took effect January 1, 2013. How does this affect the home owner? If the home is a split-level building with one or more foundation types, a radon test is required on each of these foundation types. For example, if your home has a basement and a crawlspace, a radon test is required in both the basement and in a room over the crawlspace. If your home has all three foundation types (basement, crawlspace, slab-on-grade), three radon tests are required, one over each foundation type.

Renovating? A radon test before and after a renovation is recommended. This includes new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), new windows, weatherization efforts, addition or removal of powered vents, finishing an unfinished basement, new siding, or a new roof.

Has it been 2 years since your last radon test? Radon levels fluctuate due to weather conditions and house conditions. Because of this, the EPA recommends that all homeowners test their homes every 2 years to ensure that radon levels stay below the action level of 4.0 pCi/L.
