When a radon test kit is needed, contact the State Radon Contact, advises the Environmental Protection Agency. An individual may live in a state in which radon test kits are free or available at a discounted cost.
The EPA website makes finding the State Radon Contact easy. People can search by state or region, and they can discover not only where to buy a test kit but also full radon program details. Some states have stringent regulations for radon measurement and mitigation service providers, which can include identification cards, certification and/or licensing. If an individual is Native American and lives on tribal land, he needs to contact the Tribal Health Department or Housing Authority, rather than a State Radon Contact.
