First Alert Radon Test Kit

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. Radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.*

You cannot see radon, you can't smell it or taste it. But radon may be a problem in your home. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.

You should test for radon. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. EPA also recommends testing in schools.

Testing is inexpensive and easy - it should only take a few minutes of your time. Millions of Americans have already tested their homes for radon.

This radon test kit is for you if you want to know if your home is affected by radon. You can fix a radon problem. Radon reduction systems work and they are not too costly. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.

If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

Radon can be found all over the U.S. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building - homes, offices, and schools - and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.

EPA Recommends:
  • Test your home for radon -- it's easy and inexpensive.
  • Fix your home if your radon level is 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher.
  • Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced.

* Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003). The numbers of deaths from other causes are taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's 1999-2001 National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Report and 2002 National Safety Council Reports.

Instructions were clear, and somewhat easy to follow. Packaging for return was good, and the whole process took just several day. I look forward to getting results in the mail.

The First Alert Radon Test Kit was all inclusive and very easy to use. The lab fees were pre-paid, and I had results within 8 days of mailing. In addition, the First Alert Store shipped quickly and responded very well to my order.

We use one of these kits once a year to verify that our radon fan is working correctly. The kits are easy to use. This year, the kit arrived in a smashed box, but the kit itself seemed to be OK.
