Customer Questions & Answers for
First Alert First Alert SC07 Home Radon Test Kit, RD1

The First Alert SC07 Home Radon Text Kit lets you test for radon. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. You cannot see radon, you can't smell it or taste it. But radon may be a problem in your home. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Testing is inexpensive and easy - it should only take a few minutes of your time. Millions of Americans have already tested their homes for radon.

read the instructions carefully and yes you will need to re-test. It is only suppose to be for 24 hours before you re-seal the test kit and mail it back. if any longer or shorter than 24 hours, you will have bad test results.

Recommend 48 hours and no longer than 96 hours.

answer 3
2 days min and 4 days max. (96 hours max). I did mine for 3 days total. Follow instructions. Used 3 days as cooking with exhaust fan lets radon escape home. So wanted to be sure it got a good amount of radon into test kit.

The amount of Radon gas absorbed by a testing packet depends upon the concentratino of radon in the air, but not the room size.

answer 2
it is made to test one room, but in theory your entire house will share the same air quality. The actual test states that you leave the door closed one your house for x-amount of minutes, don't run your AC for X-amount of minutes, and the close the door to the room where you place the test kit for X-amount of hours. If you have an extremely large house maybe you could get a test kit for both sides of it, and if you have 2 story I wouldn't even test the second floor because radon comes from the ground and not likely to go any higher than the first floor before it dissipates.

Radon gas comes from underground. and its density is greater than the air's, so third floor and above do not needed to test, unless that house is complete closed and nobody lives in for a long time.
