Nonprofit Home Inspections is offering a free radon test kit for moderate and low income families in the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington metro areas. The radon kits are free, but there is a $3.80 charge for postage. There are 100 test kits available in this batch on a first come first served basis. Only one free test kit per home please.
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and contributes to 21,000 deaths a year. Approximately 25% of the homes in the Portland metropolitan area have elevated radon levels. Radon mitigation is relatively straight forward if you know that you have a problem, but testing is the first step.
In order to qualify for the free test kit, families must meet the following income criteria:
|Number of People in Your Household||Yearly Gross Household Income (before taxes, etc.)||Monthly Gross Household Income (before taxes, etc.)|
By requesting a free radon test, you verify that you meet these income guidelines.
After receipt of your order, we will mail you a test kit along with instructions on how to conduct the test. Return postage is included with your kit. After completion of your test, you will receive results directly from the testing laboratory. We can provide you with additional information and referrals for both professional or DIY mitigation on request if you have elevated levels of radon. None of your personal information will be shared with any other organization without your approval.
This radon testing kit should not be considered a substitute for professional radon testing and should not be used for real estate transactions. Nonprofit Home Inspections offers professional radon testing, sewer scopes, mold testing, oil tank sweeps, Portland home inspection and Vancouver home inspection services on a sliding scale.
