Idaho Multifamily Radon Testing

Idaho multifamily radon testingIdaho Multifamily Radon Testing – With radon gas being the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, it is imperative that all individuals, whether renting a unit in an apartment complex or owning a home, be concerned about the level of exposure to radon gas in your living environment.

Radon gas has been found in every county in Idaho. Forty percent (40.2%) of the homes that have been tested in Idaho have a 4.0 or greater level of Picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L). To put that in perspective, The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a level of 2.7 aCi/L. So, Idahoans on average have a higher level of exposure to radon gas than the safe level recommended by WHO.

Idaho Counties

In analyzing the counties in Idaho several counties have shown very high levels of radon gas exposure:

  • Kootenai County – 68% of homes tested in some areas of the county test high.
  • Blaine County – 61% of homes tested in some areas of the county test high.
  • Bannock – 50% of homes tested in some areas of the county test high.
  • Ada County – 36% of homes tested in some areas of the county test high.
