Once a radon mitigation system is installed, it’s easy to become complacent. However, it is important to follow up installation with regular testing. This ensures that the system is working properly to vent the radon gas away from your home rather than letting it seep in. Your best bet is to perform a radon test immediately after installation, then every couple of years after that. You can either have your home tested professionally or do it yourself with a test kit purchased online.

Without regular follow-up tests, you may be exposing your family to high levels of radon gas that you assumed were taken care of. Because these systems can fail, it’s important to be vigilant in your testing and getting repairs to the system when needed.
