Check out a radon monitor to test your home!
After registering, pick up a radon monitor at the Utah County Health Department in Provo. The cost is $25; pay at pick up.
Make sure to download and fill out the application form and bring it with you to pick up the monitor. If you do not have a printer, you can fill out the form when you pick up the monitor. For questions or more information, contact us at UCHDRadon@utahcounty.gov.
If you prefer to perform a radon test using a mail-in home radon test kit, you may purchase discounted test kits ($10.95) at Radon.Utah.gov.
The radon monitor check-out is not suitable for real estate transactions, although any homeowner is welcome to check out the monitor. Real estate agents who need to quickly test a home can find certified radon testers at Radon.Utah.gov.
