Home Buyer's and Seller's Guide to Radon

EPA's booklet is intended for anyone who is buying or selling a home, real estate and relocation professionals, home inspectors and others.

EPA Recommends:

  • If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested for radon.
  • For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested.
  • Fix the home if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter, or pCi/L, or higher.
  • Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases, may be reduced.
  • Take steps to prevent device interference when conducting a radon test.
