Radon Testing Services
What is 4.0 pCi/L
Radioactivity in the United States is measured in units called Curies – a measure equal to the decay rate of a gram of radium. One pCi/L is one trillionth of a Curie of activity in a liter of air. The US EPA recommends that the level of radon in a home be below 4.0 pCi/L
How we measure radon levels in a home
Two types tests are used. Short-term tests lasting 2 to 7 days help identify any immediate risk. Long-term tests lasting a minimum of 90 days help identify intermittent problems that may not be discovered during the short-term test.
