Radon can be a problem in homes of ALL types. Local geology, construction materials as well at how the home was built are among the factors that can affect indoor radon levels. The EPA suggests that homeowners should check for radon at least every two years regardless if the home has a radon mitigation system. Environmental factors are always changing which can lead to higher levels of indoor air contamination.
It is advised to check for radon in condos and townhomes as well as single family houses. If radon comes from the ground then how does it get into upper levels of a building? In some cases, it emanates from the concrete and other building materials used to construct condos; in others, it moves from the ground to upper floors via elevator shafts, stairwells and venting shafts. No mater what it is a good idea to test any space for radon that is occupied.
It is highly recommended to measure the indoor concentration level of radon in Northern Virginia and District of Columbia. The Virginia Department of Health has estimated that approximately 20 to 25% of Virginia homes meet or exceed the recommended action level of 4.0 pCi/L with the DC and Northern Virginia area falling in the medium to highest potential for readings greater than 4.0 pCi/L for the overall region.
Arlington Radon uses protocols for conducting radon and radon decay product measurements developed by the National Radon Safety Board based upon state accreditation through the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).
