How To Test for Radon
Decrease FontIncrease FontPrintPrint

​Testing is the only way to know the level of radon in your home or building. Long term tests are needed for accurate representation of what you are breathing in. Long term tests are those in which the detector is in place for a minimum 3 month (91 days).

Where to get a long-term test kit

And remember:

  • Every home should be tested by a long-term test, 3 month minimum (91 days)
  • Ideally, testing should occur during winter months
  • Re-test after you renovate, make your house more energy efficient, or make changes or additions to your Heating Ventilation Air Condition (HVAC) system that could influence indoor pressures.

As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
