Who should test for radon? The EPA recommends that every homeowner test for radon. Households with children should be especially vigilant about testing and fixing radon levels, because children are the most likely to be affected. If you are buying a house, ask to see the results of any previous radon
radon testing, and test the house again yourself after moving in. And because radon can build up over time, it is a good idea to periodically retest. Radon levels can change over time, sometimes quite dramatically.

safety features are working properly by doing these two easy tests regularly: ◦Wave a broom handle under your garage door as it is closing.

safety features are working properly by doing these two easy tests regularly: • Wave a broom handle under your garage door as it is closing. The door should “see” the broom with the built-in motion sensor and roll back up immediately. • Test pressure sensitivity by placing a roll of paper towels under
soon as the door reaches the paper towel roll, the pressure sensors should “feel” it and roll the door back up. If your door fails either of these tests, call your garage door installer as soon as possible to fix the issue.

writing if you find there are elevated radon levels in the building — you can also share the results of the test with the other tenants. If you find that there are elevated radon levels in your space, provide your landlord with information on the dangers of radon from the EPA website, and ask him or her

How to test for radon. The least-expensive option is to buy a test kit that you use yourself at home. These simple kits, which come in either a short-term (fewer than 90 days) or long-term
time indicated. Keep the tester away from drafts and heat sources, and keep windows closed and fans off in the area during the test period. Once the time is up, reseal the test kit and send it in — you should get the results within a few weeks.
