Testing Process

Located in the Kansas City, MO metro, Certified Radon conducts an affordable,
professional short-term radon test that meets the EPA’s standards of radon testing. The testing device, a continuous radon monitor (CRM), is a calibrated instrument that will be placed in the lowest level of the home or building suitable for occupancy. Radon testing requires a minimum 48 hour test period with 12 (hours) of "closed-house conditions" prior to conducting the test. The continuous radon monitor (CRM) will take hourly readings for the duration of the test. Upon retrieval of the testing device, hourly readings are included in a detailed radon report specific to the structure tested.

How to Prepare

Radon Testing Checklist
For reliable test results, follow this testing checklist carefully. Improper testing may yield inaccurate results and require another test. Disturbing or interfering with the test devices or with closed-house conditions may invalidate the test results and is illegal in some states. If the following items cannot be confirmed, another test must be taken:

  • Notify the occupants of the importance of proper testing conditions. Give them a copy of this guide if possible and explain the directions carefully.
  • Conduct the radon test for a minimum of 48 hours.
  • Maintain closed-house conditions (keeping doors and windows closed) for a minimum of 12 hours before the 48-hour test begins and throughout the duration of the test.
  • If the house has an active radon-reduction system, make sure the vent fan is operating properly. If the fan is not operating properly, have it (or ask to have it) repaired and then test.
  • Operate heating and cooling systems normally during the test. For tests lasting less than one week, operate only air-conditioning units which re-circulate interior air.
  • Do not disturb the test devices at any time during the test.

After testing, a Certified Radon Specialist will upload the data from the device(s) and will be analyzed on-site. Once the report has been validated onsite and is approved by a Certified Radon Specialist the report will be sent to you by email. Results will be reviewed with you on-site if you are present, and we will answer any questions you may have to ensure peace of mind.
