Double Vial Radon in Air Test
ATTENTION: IF THIS TEST WILL BE CONDUCTED IN A BUILDING WITHIN THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA, PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE!
Radon is a naturally-occurring, mildly radioactive gas. It can leak from soil into both air and water supplies. If it’s in the water supply, showering releases it into the air. The EPA states that the presence of radon increases the risk of getting cancer, particularly lung cancer. This test kit enables you to provide two air samples for testing.
Is Radon in My Air Harmful?
Radon is present in the air in small amounts in all areas. In some parts of the United States, higher levels of radon gas may be released from underground. This gas can enter homes or buildings through cracks in the foundation and then accumulate. Long-term exposure to radon gas contributes to lung cancer. This is the second highest cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking.
How Much Does a Double Vial Radon Test Cost?
A double vial test enables you to place one vial in the lowest part of the house and one vial in the most frequently occupied part of the house. This gives you an accurate picture of how much radon contamination is occurring in your home or building. This test costs $45.
