TESTING FOR RADON

All homes should be tested.  Not all homes in Minnesota will test high for radon.

Advanced Health, Safety and Security will TEST YOUR HOME FOR FREE with a quick 48 hour test with a digital readout and an audible alarm if your radon levels are above 4 pCi/L.

We use the Safety Siren Pro Series 3 Single Station Radon Gas Detector.  This unit will give a reading within 48 hours.  The tester is designed and intended to be used as a long term monitoring unit for your home.

The detector samples the radon in the air every 15 minutes and averages those readings over time and displays the average on the red digital readout on the front.

Average Cost of the unit to purchase is $129.00. If you would like to purchase your own, please give us a call at 507-763-3606 or email: brianparrie@hotmail.com, and we will send you one.

There are other types of tests on the market. Many of these test require purchasing a kit, placing it in your home for several days and sending the test kit to a lab for analysis.  This will take a few more days and a few more dollars. We use these kits as a quality control against the digital readout monitors to insure accuracy and dependability.

Other testing can be done with expensive equipment that will cost you anywhere from $50-$150 dollars for the test.  It can be done the same day and give you a print out of the results. Advanced Health, Safety and Security can also provide this testing at the cost of around $70.00.

Radon levels in your home will fluctuate over time and seasons.  During the summer, levels will usually be down by a couple points compared to winter as the ground freezes.

The EPA recommends that if your levels average over 4 pCi/L you should have a radon mitigation unit installed to decompress your foundation of the radon gas that is intruding your home.

Advanced Health, Safety and Security can design and install a custom radon mitigation system. Most mitigation units function the same and serve the same purpose to decompress your foundation.  Not all mitigation system designs are the same and most have to be custom designed to properly remove radon from in and around your home’s foundation.
