The Importance of Radon Testing

Did you know that many Minnesotans are not testing their homes for radon, despite the state having some of the highest levels of radon in the country? According to an analysis of data collected during a recent five-year period, only 1 percent of properties in Minnesota have been tested for radon. Yet that same data suggests that 2 in 5 homes in the state have a radon level of 4.0 picocuries per liter of air or higher. It has a lot to do with the geology in the soil here in Minnesota. Has your home been tested for radon?

Radon is colorless, odorless and tasteless. Radon is found in every type of home and throughout the entire world. You may never know that it is a problem in your home until you have radon testing done. There are at-home testing kits, however, The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) and its National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) recently issued an advisory about these do-it-yourself tests. They warn that these tests sometimes provide invalid results, are not evaluated by the NRPP and do not meet their established requirements.
