Yes, but you have to keep doors and windows closed during the testing period, so something to consider when choosing what time of year to test.
The package says that if you leave the test out for longer than 4 days your results will not be as accurate since it is intended to be a short test. I believe there are other tests that can be done for longer periods of time.
Yes, you can use the test area as you normally would. The only thing that you may have to do differently is keep the doors and windows closed for the duration of the test. You can still use your entry doors, just be sure to keep them closed when not in use.
This kit is for testing radon gas in an enclosed space.
That would be a good idea. Alternatively, place it at a location most frequented in the basement.
They most always test within one day of receiving the kits for processing. If you indicate on the paperwork you send to them that you want email notification, then they email you that day with a pdf of the results. Pretty quick!
Radon results are express in pCi/L - Pico Curies per Liter of air. This is the standard way of measuring radon concentration in the US. A curie is a measure of radioactivity - number of decays per second. So it is effectively a measurement of how much radon is decaying per liter of air per second. There is no safe level of radon - all radon is radioactive and is harmful. However, in a practical sense it is usually impossible to entirely eliminate radon, since it is naturally occurring and is found in the outdoor air (in very low concentrations). The EPA recommends that radon levels at or above 4.0 pCi/L should be mitigated.
Yes. Plus it cost $15 to mail it. About the same costs as a professional by the time your done.
The LabTech Radon Detection Kit comes with a hook. You should hang the Radon test packet in the middle of your basement.
