Tamara Day on Radon Detection: Why Try a Home Test for Radon

2 minute read


As a homeowner, it can be difficult to worry about a problem that you can’t see or smell (like radon gas). You’ve got enough things to worry about, after all—and trust us, our Healthy Air Ambassador Tamara Day knows a thing or two about that!

To help protect her family from the dangers of radon exposure, we here at AprilAire reached out to this home improvement guru to talk about the importance of radon detection and how using a home test for radon can provide insight into potentially high levels of radon inside her home. Turns out, that’s exactly what we found!

“I was shocked,” reflects Tamara Day, “I had no idea that was something we were dealing with. I am thrilled we’re getting it mitigated because my daughter loves to have a little fort under the stairs in the basement, which is where radon detection is the strongest.”

Protect Your Home and Test for Radon

Radon is the #1 one cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers. The only way to know if you’re being exposed is to test.

Why Radon Detection Is Important

AprilAire Healthy Air Professional and Certified Radon Control Pro, Marcus Nelson shares insight on the importance of radon detection and conducting an annual home test for radon, no matter where you live.

“It’s one of those things that people think about when they’re buying a new house but then forget about and never revisit. It can fluctuate over time, so it’s good to monitor any changes.”

To underscore how important radon detection is, Tamara Day executed an AprilAire Short-Term Radon Test Kit in her own home, which showed elevated levels of radon gas!

“I have never tested for radon in our home,” she admits, “Maybe when we first bought the house, but I don’t even remember. Now I would suggest everyone do it. Especially if you have a basement.”

Using a Home Test for Radon Detection

What did Tamara Day have to say about her experience using a home test for radon detection? “The process was crazy easy. They sent everything I needed in the mail. I hung it up in the basement, waited a few days, and sent it back. AprilAire did all the hard work!”

After this radon detection discovery, Tamara Day worked with AprilAire Healthy Air Professionals of SWAT Environmental to solve the problem in her home. They used an AprilAire Radon Mitigation Fan and industry best practices to mitigate the radon and make sure the problem stayed away.

Now, Tamara Day strongly recommends that other homeowners conduct a home test for radon at least once per year!
