I tested my home for radon and the level came back high. What do I do?

The EPA standard of 4 picocuries per liter of air is an annual standard. If you aren’t in a hurry (for example, selling or buying the tested home), then re-test the home for 3 months to a year using a long term radon test kit, to get a better idea of what the average level is. If you don’t have the time, then re-test with another short term radon test kit. If the average of the two short term tests OR the result of the long term test is 4 pCi/l or higher, hire a radon mitigator to install a mitigation system.
