DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW

The Rapidos premium alpha track radon kit is a great alternative to other alpha track test kits that have longer exposure time. The Rapidos has been certified or accredited by the National Radon Proficiency Program, National Radon Safety Board and the International Organization for Standardization; standards 17025, 14001 and 9001. The only radon testing laboratory in the United States who has been certified to international standards.

The radon test kit remains in your home for a period of no less than ten (10) days and not to exceed ninety (90) days, allowing you to measure the radon level under normal living conditions. When ready to begin testing, please ensure you are at the test site before opening the presealed radon-proof plastic bag. The Rapidos takes into account all the fluctuations of radon gas due to changes in weather that occur during testing and the changes in the way you occupy/use your house under differing weather conditions. Weather conditions and ventilation habits can influence the radon level in your house. Windows on all levels and external doors should be kept closed (except during normal entry and exit) while the test is in progress.

An alpha track detector operates on a very different principle than the charcoal-based short term radon test kit and provides a much better indication of your home's average radon level. Inside the unit is a piece of film that records the impacts (tracks) of alpha particles produced by the decay of radon and its decay by-product, polonium. At the end of the radon gas test period, the radon testing kit is sent in the pre-paid mailer to the laboratory, who counts the alpha tracks on the film, computes the radon concentration, and reports the analysis.

The advantage of the Rapidos is the ability to register your own personal account with the laboratory's online portal. With the online portal you will be able to specify the property and location of the test site, as well as the start and end date of the testing period. If you do not have this capability, you may fill-out the included data sheet to be returned with the exposed radon test kit. Once the exposed radon test kit has been received and analyzed by the laboratory you will receive an email of the results. Also, you are able to access and view your results and download the analytical report via a PDF document.

Why do I need to test for radon?

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water, entering the air you breathe. Radon is colorless and odorless. It can infiltrate any type of building - homes, offices, and schools - and build up to high levels. But you and your family will most likely receive your greatest exposure where you spend most of your time... your home.

It is estimated that radon causes many thousands of deaths each year because breathing air that contains radon can cause lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of contracting lung cancer is especially high.
