“Do-It-Yourself” Radon Test Kits
According to The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA), only a person performing radon
measurements on a dwelling in which that person resides may perform a measurement without a
Radon Measurement License from the IEMA.
IEMA recommends that homes involved in a real estate transaction have radon measurements
performed by a Radon Measurement Licensee
In order to accurately determine the radon concentration of your home, IEMA recommends you follow
the instructions provided with the test kit to place and retrieve the detector. Additionally, IEMA
suggests you review and follow our Guidelines for Radon Measurements in the Home to determine
the number of detectors needed, the locations for placement and general testing protocols. Ensure at
the completion of the radon measurement that the test kit is mailed back to the laboratory in
accordance with the instructions provided with the kit.
