About The Kidde 442020 Radon Detector Kit The Kidde 442020 Radon Detector Kit is EPA registered and makes testing for radon easy. Included in the Kidde 442020 Radon Detector Kit are instructions, an information card, a return mailer envelope, and an activated charcoal radon sampler bag. To test for radon place the radon sampler bag in an ideal location for three days, and then just mail the bag in the enclosed envelope to Alpha Energy Laboratories for testing.

The cost of mailing the bag is not included but only requires two postage stamps. Radon gas is an invisible, odorless, widespread radioactive gas that is a natural byproduct of uranium decaying in the ground. The EPA has said that radon gas is the second leading contributor to lung cancer. Radon gas exists naturally outdoors in low concentrations that are not a health concern generally. In areas such as basements that are not ventilated well radon gas can accumulate and be a cause for concern.
Kidde's radon test kit analyzes the amount of radon, a carcinogen, in your home with an EPA-registered facility. Radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year and exposure to radon in the home is responsible for an estimated 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year. Radon is a health hazard with a simple solution.
Place the enclosed radon sampler bag in the test location for two to three days. Then mail the radon sampler bag to Alpha Energy Laboratories in the kit's self-addressed envelope. Test results are mailed back to you by the lab.
Analysis included, no additional fees to pay except New Jersey residents EPA charges $10
Includes activated radon sampler tray and return mailer envelope for professional lab analysis
Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building — homes, offices, and schools — and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.
