Short term radon test kits measure radon over a period of 3-7 days. Please note that radon levels fluctuate so short term test results may not be indicative of the true long term average.
Long term radon test kits run from 8 days to one year. Since radon levels can fluctuate significantly from day to day, a long term test is required if you wish to know the true average levels
Radon gas can dissolve in groundwater and later be released into the air when the water leaves the faucet, shower head, dishwasher, and cloths washer. If your water comes from a well and your air radon levels are elevated, it is advisable to conduct a radon water test.
Radon is the largest cause of lung cancer in non-smokers in the USA.
