The only way to find out how much Radon you’re being exposed to is to test the lowest lived in area of your home. Two neighbors living side-by-side may very well have vastly different levels of Radon in their homes, so knowing your neighbor’s level does not help you to know what your own exposure might be.
If you’re a KY resident, you can get a free test kit from your local health department. These tests are performed over several months, and give a great depiction of the average levels of Radon you’re being exposed to over the course of a year. These types of tests are recommended when time is not a factor. However, in a real estate transaction, time is ALWAYS a factor. By calling in a trained, professional tester, Radon level results can be obtained within 48 hours.
When using Rosie Home Inspections to perform your General Home Inspection, a Radon Test can be added for an additional $149.
