Instructions are included with the test kit. When the testing period is over, mail the kit to the lab, and the lab mails back your results in a few weeks. Contact Gloria Smedema at the Fond du Lac County Health Department (firstname.lastname@example.org or 920/929-3085) if you have questions about your results.
If you are planning to buy or sell a house, it is highly recommended that you use a certified radon measurement professional.
With a result of 4 pC/L or higher, the EPA recommends mitigating your home using a certified radon mitigation contractor. This can be done after a home is built or during construction. People age 62 and older with very low incomes living outside the City of Fond du Lac may apply to receive a loan or grant from the USDA to finance a radon mitigation project in their home.
