Don’t let people who have experienced radon issues perpetuate the myth that home radon tests are a pain. This is one of the myths about radon you can debunk by yourself pretty easily. There are preliminary radon tests you can buy that only cost $15 and take between two and seven days to conduct. After you set up the test, you can just sit back and wait for the results. Although this type of short-term test can be less accurate, it can at least provide a ballpark idea of the radon situation in your home. If the reading comes back high or borderline, you can always opt to begin more extensive testing. If it comes back low, you can rest easy and maybe test again in the future.
