Canisters

All windows and external doors must be kept closed as much as possible twelve hours before and during the sampling period, except for normal entering and exiting. Fans and ventilation systems that use outside air should not be operated during the sampling period. Do not test during high winds.

Fill in all customer information on the reverse side of this sheet. Also, record the address of the sampling location, serial number of canister and the location of each canister.

Place canisters two to five feet off the floor side by side, four inches apart, on an object that does not restrict air flow (i.e. stool, table).

Remove the tape from around the canister, place lid under the lower half of the canister. Save the tape by wrapping tape loosely around open canister and lid. Repeat with second canister if it is a two canister kit. Record the start day, date, and time on reverse of this sheet.

Do not disturb for two days. After 48 hours of exposure, replace the lid on each canister and reseal it with the same tape. Record stop day, date, and time on the reverse of this sheet.

Place the sealed canister in the box and enclose this sheet. If samples are to be mailed, affix the reply label on the outside of the box and seal the box with scotch tape. Postage is required. To expedite the results, the test kit can be dropped off at the laboratory. There is a drop box available for after hours use. New England Radon is not responsible for lost delayed mail.

Results are confidential and are not given over the phone. Results will be ready one to two business days after receipt at laboratory.
