What is the probability of having high radon in a Florida house?
Sunday, November 18, 2018
The Florida Department of Health keeps statistics on the test results of all licensed radon professionals in the Florida, and you can find out the percentage of tested homes in your zip code that exceeded the 4.0 p/ci maxium set by the EPA at: http://dchpexternalapps.doh.state.fl.us/radon/default.aspx
The use of this database has a couple of limitations:
- Some zip codes do not have enough test data to provide a percentage and, in other zip codes, the number of tests is not enough to provide good statistical accuracy.
- Because it is possible to have elevated radon in one home and an acceptable radon level in a house next door, the only way to know for sure is to test your home.
