The Vermont Department of Health Laboratory offers two types of radiological testing: air and environmental testing.
The laboratory works with state partnerships to test environmental samples for naturally occurring and man-made radioactive materials. This type of testing is not available to the public.
Radon in air testing is available to the public.
You should test your home’s radon levels in air:
If it’s never been tested or radon levels are unknown
When preparing to buy or sell a home
Before and after any renovations, especially after making any repairs to reduce radon levels
Before making any lifestyle changes in the home that would cause someone to spend more time in the basement or lower level (like converting a basement to a bedroom)
