Short Term Radon Test Kit

Overexposure to radon is a dangerous proposition. However, it occurs much more often than it needs to. Why? Many residential property owners and even some commercial property owners do not have a short term radon test kit.

What does a short term radon test kit do for you? It gives you the ability to test for overexposure in real time. Although you may not realize it, you need to have this capability in order to keep yourself and your property safe.

How does shipping work?
We will ship the detectors to you with instructions. Orders placed prior to 12:00pm CT ship same day (excluding holidays and weekends); orders placed after 12:00pm ship next business day. Once the testing is complete, mail them back to us with the prepaid label.

How long does it take to process my test?
Upon receiving your test, our laboratory will complete processing within a few business days.

Do you have short radon test kits that test faster than 10 days?
Yes, our QuickScreen Short Term Radon Screening is designed to test over a period of 2-4 days. Because radon levels can fluctuate daily, a faster test can be a less reliable representative of true average levels.

Do you have long term radon test kits?
Yes! We have highly rated long term radon test kits.

8 reviews for Rapidos – Short Term Radon Test Kit

  1. Stephen sheldon

    Bought this short term (10-90 days) test because I was selling my house.(so on a tight time frame)Very easy to use and the customer service was great! Only one minor issue was that it advertises 2 day shipping from and then back to the lab included in the cost. It took 5-7 days each way. I was a little annoyed becuase i thought the higher price I payed for this compared to other tests was because it would be faster.

      RE: Stephen Sheldon
      Thank you for your comments, Stephen. I investigated your situation and can offer the following details. We received and shipped your order on April 5th via FedEx 2-Day which was delivered to you on the 9th. Not including weekends this is the standard for FedEx 2-day. Every kit includes return postage via USPS and assuming you mailed the test immediately after completing the test, we received your kit 4 days after you mailed it. Unfortunately, return shipping via USPS is subject to the normal return times and not expedited. Subsequently, after receiving your test, a report was generated and emailed out 4 business days later. If you have any additional questions, you can reach us directly at info@radonova.com.

    Very good service! Got quick results and I highly recommend it!

    Bought two of the Rapidos detectors for my neighbor and I after the home behind us put in a mitigation system. Checkout was easy, received the tests in just a few days, and when I had questions about my result the person was very knowledgeable and explained how homes so close to each other can have varying levels. Will probably test again with a year long test but happy to know that initially our level was low.

    After getting a borderline result on our home inspection, the inspector said we should test for 90 days. We were closing on the house and didn’t want to pay to fix a high level was found after closing. Found this 10 day test online, called the company, and they explained how it was different from a 2 day test. Was able to convince seller to put money in escrow for 30 days pending the results of this test and found our higher borderline level was just a spike in the concentration. Highly recommend before mitigating based on a 2 day test.

    Seemed expensive but everything is included in the price. Very fast and trustworthy as I have previously measured with another company and it took ages before I got my report!

  7. Anna

    Got a quick answer to my question when I contacted customer service. Helped to understand the differences between their products.

Why Your Home Needs the Best Radon Detection Kit

One of the greatest threats to the health and safety of a home is high levels of the deadly gas radon, a colorless, odorless gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Most people take the safety and security of their homes quite seriously investing in security devices and safety equipment but often overlook the need for radon testing.

When testing for radon gas, a Class 1 carcinogen, it is important that you get the most reliable result. If a mis-reported radon level is high, you may unnecessarily install a radon mitigation system. While beneficial when you have a high level this mistake could cost in upwards of $2000. On the other end, a misreported low level could leave your home and family exposed to higher than normal levels of radon.

Responsible for 21,000 deaths a year and being the second leading cause of lung cancer, the fatalist of the most common types of cancer, radon gas is a very serious issue, and you should be serious about testing for it, with a laboratory who is serious about their products and reports.

Radon is All Around Us

Radon is a naturally occurring in the environment around us. Contrary to what many people believe, it is impossible to completely get away from radon exposure. Your goal is to limit this exposure and make sure that it always stays within acceptable levels.

You may be putting yourself at greater risk of radon exposure if you have appliances in the basement level of your property. These appliances pull in resources from the outside environment. Radon tends to make its way into your living and workspaces through the soil, the air and the water.

Radon in the air is the most potent radioactive substance. It is also odorless, colorless and completely invisible here. This is the exposure that you want to limit the most.

Fixing Your Property at its BaseShort Term Radon Gas Test Kit

Overexposure to radon may also serve as a symptom of other dangers on your property. For instance, radon may come into your living and workspaces through cracks in your concrete, brick and marble. Because radon experiences many natural phenomena such as diffusion (the natural tendency of things to expand into areas of lower concentration), you need to seal off your property as much as possible.

If you take a short term radon test kit and find that radon levels are too high, you may want to check the veracity of your concrete and brick. It is likely that your property is experiencing some sort of breakage, because radon finds its way into your property through cracks and fissures.

For instance, concrete pores constitute around 18% of all concrete by volume. If water is making its way into your basement through concrete, it is likely that radon is making its way here as well.

You also want to limit the amount of heating that you do in the winter months if you find that your radon exposure is too high. This is especially true if your heating unit is in the basement. In the same way that radon comes in through pores in the concrete, it can also come in through the air that your heating system uses from the outside environment.
