Radon: Can You Graph That?

Lately, we’ve noticed that the market is giving preference to radon testing results that contain graphs and charts. Though we perceive these to be of little marginal value, clients find them to be engaging and factual. After all, they have hour-by-hour results, right?

According to NC Radon program, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the World Health Organization (WHO), what matters is the actual short-term average, measured in picoCuries per liter (pCi/L).  The NC Radon Testing Program website states that for real estate transactions, what matters is whether the final number is over or under 4.0pCi/L. The WHO measures their own limit to 2.7 pCi/L.

We would also recommend the EPA’s Home Buyer’s and Seller’s Guide to Radon and our previous post, Why Use a Different Radon Level?

Happy radon hunting!
