Make sure your home is healthy by testing for radon, mold, carbon monoxide, lead paint and VOCs

Charcoal packets (Air Chek Inc. ) can be used to screen your home for elevated levels of radon annually. By using two packets for each test you can determine if it is necessary to hire someone to test with a more precise radon measuring device (continuous monitoring, electrets ion chamber, etc.). If you have an elevated test (above 4 pCi/liter of air) you should hire a professional to complete a continuous monitor test or test long term (90 days – 1 year) with an alpha track testing device before determining to abate the radon issue. There are advantages to completing a yearlong test since you would get an overall average rather than a spot reading.
