Wondering if your home has high levels of radon gas? Here’s why you should think about buying a short-term radon test kit:
Screen for radon
Not sure if you have radon infiltration issues in your home or not? The test will check your home for the presence of radon. Since this gas is impossible to detect with the naked eye—it’s invisible, has no taste and no smell either—the test is the only reliable way for you to detect its presence in your home.
Determine radon levels
These test kits are designed to measure the levels of radon gas in your home. Don’t panic, though. Not all homes demonstrate radon levels about or above 4 pCi/L. Even if you do have radon in your home, it could be well below safety levels. If that’s the case, you’re in the clear. However, you’ll need to regularly check your home for radon levels. These could increase over time, so you’ll want to keep an eye on it.
Get faster results
Short-term radon test kits are often the go-to option for many homeowners. That’s because it only needs to run for about 2 to 7 days, whereas long-term test kits will need a minimum of 90 days. If you want to find out if your home has been exposing you and your loved ones to high levels of radon and you don’t have much time or patience to wait around for the results, short-term kits are ideal for you. You’ll get results and confirm the presence and levels—or lack thereof—of radon gas in your home right away, says Consumer Reports.
Enjoy ease of use
Also, short-term kits are much easier to use. Long-term kits require longer time frames and thus, are much more complicated. With easy-to-follow instructions, short-term kits offer homeowners a stress and hassle-free option. For more information, contact the professionals at S.W.A.T. Environmental for an appointment.
