For Home Buyers and Sellers alike, the EPA recommends a radon test whenever purchasing a home, selling a home, or making your current home safe for your family. Consider it standard practice, just like a regular home inspection.
Real Estate Agents and Home Inspection Professionals
While laws vary from state-to-state, no rules currently exist requiring Ohio real estate agents or home inspection pros to provide radon information to clients during a home sale.
However, knowledge is key to setting agents and inspectors apart from the crowd. Plus, it could save your client’s life.

What does EPA recommend?
If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested for radon.
For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested.
Fix the home if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter, or pCi/L, or higher.
Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases, may be reduced.
Take steps to prevent device interference when conducting a radon test.
Understanding Radon Test Results
Recommendations below are based on test results by a Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) Test of at least a 48 hour duration and are based on recommendations by the EPA. Measured Average Radon Level:
At or above 4.0 pCi/l: Corrective measures to reduce exposure to radon gas is strongly recommended (ANSI MAH2014) Radon Mitigation is strongly recommended.
Between 2-4 pCi/l: Consider mitigation or periodic retest as indoor Radon levels vary by season and weather conditions
Below 2 pCi/l: Consider bi-annual retest or whenever significant changes to the home structure or mechanical systems
