How can I check my home for radon?
The only way to know the radon level in your home is to test your home. Each home is different, and a neighbor's radon results can't be used to determine if your home has a problem. Homeowners can purchase simple, low-cost radon detectors for use in their homes. The two most common types of radon detectors are long-term (alpha track or electret ion) and short-term (charcoal canisters).
