Radon testing in Hawaii is typically done using a collection canister, which is placed within an area of concern for the specified period. Suitable test areas include offices, family rooms, living rooms, playrooms, and bedrooms, preferably in the room that is on the lowest level of the building. Hawaii radon testing measurements should not be made in kitchens, laundry rooms, or bathrooms, since they are not occupied for long periods. Kitchens and bathrooms are not suitable for Hawaii radon testing due to the presence of humidity and particulate expected in these locations. Radon can be found in drinking water, and may contribute the amount of airborne radon. The Hawaii radon testing detector should be positioned where it will not be disturbed, away from drafts or air currents from doors, windows, or appliances. Optimal height is the breathing zone, or about five feet from the floor. The Hawaii radon testing canisters are then sent to the Hawaii radon testing lab, and analysis is performed, giving the radon concentration per liter of air. Most environmental labs that provide Hawaii radon testing can provide the canisters, chain of custody forms, and radon testing instructions for Hawaii.



Hawaii Radon Gas

 



Hawaii radon testing should be done in occupied buildings to identify the need for remediation and to reduce the risk to public health from exposure to radon. Initial radon testing is typically done in Hawaii homes, public buildings, and schools to determine radon concentrations. The U.S. EPA recommends that initial short-term Hawaii radon testing measurements be done in the lowest occupied level of the building, and performed while all doors and windows are closed, except for normal entry and exit. Short-term Hawaii radon testing can range from two to ninety day sampling periods, and the building should be sealed at least 12 hours prior to sampling. If the short-term Hawaii radon testing measurement result is equal to or greater than 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L), a follow-up Hawaii radon testing measurement is recommended to confirm that radon levels are high enough to require remediation or mitigation.

 

Mitigation techniques are intended to keep radon gas from entering buildings by reducing the pressure differential between the building interior and the underlying soil, which results in the migration of radon gas from an area of higher pressure to an area of lower pressure. Simply sealing cracks and seams in the building's slab or foundation should be the first step. Secondary measures can include installing fans and vents to remove radon gas from a building.
