In an effort to limit
community transmission of COVID-19, RSSI is reducing in-office
staff time. RSSI is still open for business, but as a
result of the reduced staffing, turn-around times for
responses, order fulfillment, lab analyses, and instrument
calibrations may increase.
Radon is found everywhere. This naturally-occurring odorless radioactive gas enters homes from the soil around and under foundations. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. The US EPA estimates that over 20,000 Americans die of radon-induced lung cancer each year. Lung cancer risk goes down if the radon concentration in your home is lowered. The only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon is to test your home. Homes, schools, and other buildings can be tested with RSSI's do-it-yourself kits.
two alpha track radon detectors have been optimized to be the best performing detectors available today. Use RSSI's radon detectors to measure the radon concentration in your home and learn if it needs to be lowered. Radon concentrations, like temperature, vary with the time of day,
the season, weather conditions, and location. For the best indicator of the average radon concentration in your home, the test should be for as long as possible, up to a year.
US EPA, the Surgeon General, the American Lung Association, the
American Medical Association, and the National Safety Council all
recommend testing homes for radon.
do-it-yourself radon gas test kits are $28 each, or $25 when purchasing 6 or more kits. Order test kits
