EPA recommended. Every home should be tested.
The EPA recommends every home to be tested for radon gas. The EPA believes that radon is a health hazard. However, there are simple solutions if the radon levels in your home are above safe standards.
Known to cause Lung Cancer. A naturally occurring radioactive gas.
According to the EPA radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can’t see or smell radon. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. Radon can have a big impact on indoor air quality.
Levels seriously matter. WL or picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L)
The EPA also stipulates that radon test results may be reported in three different measures – picocuries (pCi/l), Working Levels (WL) and bequerels (bq). If your test result is in pCi/L, EPA recommends you fix your home if the radon level is 4 pCi/L or higher. If the test result is in WL, EPA recommends you fix your home if the working level is 0.016 WL or higher.While not commonly used in the United States, any radon level at or above 0.148 bq should be reduced.

Radon.org was started by a concerned home buyer out of personal interest.
