How to test your home for Radon

About 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States have a level of radon that is too high.  Arizona is not different than other States. There isn't a specific pattern able to predict if a house has high level of radon. It could be that in the same neighbor, one house is clean and the close one has high level of radon.

This is the reason it is recommended to test your house in Arizona. You never know if there is raon in your house. Radon is a natural radioactive gas that you can’t see or smell.  

Testing your home for radon is easy and it is even Free with AZRadonPros! You can order our test kit here.

Test for radon in the lowest level of your home where people spend time. If you use part of your basement for living space, like a playroom, test there. If you only use your basement for storage, test the first floor. Avoid testing in places that are damp – like the kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room.

Then you can send the test kit to the laboratory and we will call you for the result. If the radon level is high, we will discuss with you about the options you have to mitigate radon level in your home in Arizona.

  • 1 in 4 homes in the state of Arizona are above the EPA recommended 4.0 pCi/L
  • The maximum concentration of radon found in a home in Arizona is 55.8 pCi/L
