How to Radon Gas Test Your Home with a Radon Gas Testing Kit
You can't see radon gas, but it's not hard to find out if you have a problem in your home. All you need to do is radon gas testing. A radon gas test is easy to do and won't take too much of your time. You can order your radon gas testing kits online or if you are buying a home you may want to hire a radon gas testing professional.
There Are Basically 2 Ways to Radon Gas Test
- Short Term Radon Gas Tests - This would be any radon gas testing that lasts for less than 90 days, regardless of the kind of radon gas test kit used. In most cases, short term radon gas testing is done for 2 days using our ST-100 Short-Term Detectors. However, a 30 or 60 day radon test done with an AT-100 Alpha Track Detector would still be considered a short term radon gas test and the test results would be no more valid than any other short term radon gas test. You should do a short term radon test if you have reason to believe your home might have very high radon levels or if you're buying a home and wish to test before the purchase.
- Long Term Radon Gas Testing - Is any radon gas test that lasts for longer than 90 days. In general, the longer the radon gas test, the better the radon gas test. In fact, the very best radon gas testing should last an entire year. That's why if you have the time, Home Radon Test.Com recommends using our AT-100 Alpha Track Detectors. You can get the advantage of both radon gas test kits by using our AS-100 Dual Radon Gas Testing Kit. With this radon gas test kit you can use the 2-day tester to quickly find out if you have a potential problem. Then use the long term radon gas test to get a more accurate reading.
