How Many Virginia Homes Have High Radon?

The average level of radon in outdoor air is any home, old or new, single family or multifamily, can have high radon in the indoor air. The U.S. EPA recommends that all homes and apartments below the third floor be tested.

In Virginia, 46 counties and 15 cities are classified by the EPA Radon Zone Map as Zone 1 (high risk of radon), and 24 counties and 8 cities classified as Zone 2 (moderate risk). The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) estimates that approximately 20 to 25% of Virginia homes may meet or exceed the recommended action level of 4.0 picocuries per Liter (pCi/L). VDH reminds everyone living and working in Virginia, “Testing your home, workplace or other normally occupied area is the only way to know for sure if an indoor radon problem exists.”

Radon Testing Is Required in Virginia Schools.

Recognizing that children can be harmed by exposure to high radon in their schools, a Virginia statute requires all schools be tested for radon. If a school tests high, it is the responsibility of the School District and residents to decide how to address mitigation issues.

How Do I Test My Virginia Home for Radon?

During a real estate transaction, it is recommended that you have the radon tested by a radon testing professional. Many home inspectors are certified to test for radon. If you are testing your current Virginia home, accurate and easy to use short-term radon in air test kits are available. When testing your own home, VDH recommends testing your home between late October and early May. If the home also has a well, EPA recommends that you test the well water as well.
