Radon sampling includes collecting radon data in up to two locations in your home to determine radon concentrations at the lowest level of the house. This is important because radon seeps into a house from the ground. Radon settles in the lowest levels in the house because it’s heavier than air. Houses with basements are of greater concern for radon for this reason.
Sampling for radon involves placing passive monitors at the lowest areas of the house that are unlikely to be disturbed during the process. Canisters are placed and retrieved two or three days later. Results on the samples are typically delivered from the accredited laboratory in approximately five business days.
