A Radon Survey Of Your Residence Is In Progress

Dear Resident,

An important step is being taken to protect your health. Radon testing is being conducted for this building.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can be present in some buildings at concentrations greater than recommended. Testing for radon is recommended for all homes. Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer and the leading cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers in the United States.

The only way to know what the radon concentrations are for any building is to test.

Please help to maintain these required test conditions throughout the building (12 hours prior the test and during the test).

Keep closed

on all levels of the building including areas not being tested

Exterior doors

(except for momentary entry and exit)

Heating and cooling systems

Set to normal

occupied operating conditions with normal temperatures between 65˚ and 80˚ F (18˚ - 27˚ C)

Systems that temporarily ventilate with outdoor air for seasonal comfort or energy savings Set to the lowest seasonal ventilation
Bathroom fans Operate normally

Exhausts Systems (that temporarily draw air from the building such from laundries, workshops, community kitchens or for local control of fumes

Avoid excessive operation
Fireplaces (that burn solid, liquid or gas fuels unless a primary/normal source of heat for the building) Do not operate
