Can you open basement door during radon test?

As opening basement doors or windows during a radon test can distort results, tests should generally be conducted under closed-house conditions; that means keeping all windows and doors closed except those required for entry and exit purposes. This creates a stable indoor environment and ensures that test results reflect typical levels in your home.

If opening doors or windows for ventilation during a radon test is required, it is crucial that you adhere to the instructions included with the test kit or consult a certified radon mitigation contractor for guidance. In certain instances, precautionary steps can be taken to ensure test results do not suffer due to ventilation; such as opening windows for short periods of time or placing the test kit somewhere that does not directly influence airflow.

Overall, it’s essential that you follow the instructions included with your radon test kit or consult with an expert to conduct tests correctly and obtain accurate results.
