How Often Should Homeowners Test for Radon?

Thursday, October 30th

Homeowners who have tested their homes for radon and received low readings can rest easy - at least for two years. Experts say that homes should ideally be tested every two years since radon levels can fluctuate.

In a column in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, a home inspector and local expert says test should be conducted every two years, but in the case of a home sale, there are a number of other factors to take into account. And that's important now in Minnesota, where homeowners are required to disclose knowledge of any radon concentrations in the home.

Home buyers and sellers should look at where the test was taken in the home, that the testing was done by a qualified company, that no major changes took place in the home, and that the test was conducted within the last two years.
