Florida Radon Information

Florida Radon Program:

Radon Website: Website
Radon Contact: Clark Eldredge
Active Radon Program: Yes
Require License for Radon Professionals: Yes

Florida is the 22nd most expansive state and the fourth most populous. It also happens to be the 8th most densely populated state in the US, likely because many are seeking a warmer climate. Since 1989 the state has required radon measurement and mitigation professionals to be certified and registered. As far as radon exposure, the Florida radon program estimates that in some areas one out of every two homes will show elevated levels.

The state has a commendable Radon program, dedicated to educating citizens about the risks associated with the deadly gas. You can find more information on Radon, testing and mitigation at the official Florida government page.

The radon levels in Florida are above average in certain areas of the state. That means there’s an increased risk for all homeowners, which is why we recommend testing exposure levels at least twice a year.

Florida Radon Levels

Map of Florida Radon Levels

Zone 1 (1): Potential for radon levels above 4 pCi/L according to EPA
Zone 2 (2): Potential for radon levels between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L according to the EPA
Zone 3 (3): Lowest EPA level with expected radon levels at or below 2 pCi/L
Disclaimer: It is strongly recommended that all households, schools and office spaces test radon levels individually. The EPA Radon Zone data is not an indicator of individual test results, but a guideline for strategic planning. Toxic radon levels can be found in all counties, regardless of their zone rating. While we make efforts to keep this information up to date, it is derived from third­party sources which may not be accurate or reflect the most current statistics.

Florida Radon Statistics

Florida has 66 counties and 0 (0%) have been assigned Zone 1 counties by the EPA. Zone 1 counties have the highest potential to have homes test higher than 4 pCi/L. Florida's state radon zone average is 2.88, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 48 among all states.

Florida Radon Contractor License Information

Does Florida require contractors to be licensed? Yes.

What are the licensing requirements? The requirements are as follows:

  1. Submit two page certification application, along with the non-refundable fee to the Florida Department of Health, Radon office.
  2. Attend and complete an approved qualification course.
  3. Take and pass one of the department of certification exams, which are held three times a year.

Florida Radon Real Estate Requirements

Does the state of Florida require radon testing for all real estate transactions? No, however the seller is required to educate the buyer on the hazards of radon. More specifically, the seller must include the following wording in the sales contract:

"RADON GAS: Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that, when it has accumulated in a building in sufficient quantities, may present health risks to persons who are exposed to it over time. Levels of radon that exceed federal and state guidelines have been found in buildings in Florida. Additional information regarding radon and radon testing may be obtained from your county health department."

Even though the state does not require testing, we certainly recommend you have one done before you purchase a home. If you decide to perform a test after and find elevated levels, there is no reason to panic. Radon mitigation is not expensive compared to the dangers, and a system can be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
