A radon mitigation contractor should perform the following basic steps when putting a radon mitigation system in your home:
Once your contractor has completed these steps, you should verify the system is working by conducting a post-mitigation test within 30 days of installation but no sooner than 24 hours after your system is in operation with the fan on. Retest again at least every two years. In Nevada, it is recommended that testing be done during the heating season months.
Nevada Radon Education Program
The Nevada Radon Education Program is funded through a grant from the EPA to educate Nevadans about the health risk posed by elevated levels of radon in the home. The Extension program offers literature, educational presentations and low-cost radon test kits in many county Extension and partner offices.
