Testing for Radon

Part of owning a home is testing for Radon.  Radon is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless gas, that occurs naturally as the decay product of radium and it enters your home through the ground.  So we’ve lived here five years now and it was time to do an updated Radon test for the house.  Fortunately this is really easy and inexpensive to do in Georgia through the University of Georgia so we ordered our test kit for $6.50 which includes the lab fee.  After a few days we received the test in the mail and we hung it in the basement according to the directions. Four days later we took the test down and mailed it in.  We will share the results when they come in.

You should consider testing your home every few years, the EPA can help you find a local testing program or you can go directly to the Air Check for your test.

UPDATE: The results are in
