Kansas Radon Information

Kansas Radon Program:

Radon Website: Website
Radon Contact: Kim Steves
Active Radon Program: Yes
Require License for Radon Professionals: No

Kansas is the 15th most expansive state and the 34th most populous. It also happens to be one of the most productive states in the country as far as agriculture is concerned with several high yields of wheat, sorghum and more. It is estimated by the Kansas Department of Public Health that more than 200 lung cancer deaths in the state every year can be linked to indoor radon exposure.

The state has an active 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 page.

The radon levels in Kansas are above average in many 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.

Kansas Radon Levels

Map of Kansas 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.

Kansas Radon Statistics

Kansas has 105 counties and 65 (62%) 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. Kansas's state radon zone average is 1.38, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 11 among all states.

Kansas Radon Contractor License Information

Does Kansas require contractors to be licensed? Yes.

As of July, 2011 legislation requires all persons performing radon testing or mitigation in the state to be certified.

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

  • Attend and complete an approved qualification course. For measurement the course must have at least 16 hours of instruction, and for mitigation it must have at least 24 hours of instruction. Both certifications require a minimum of 70% passing score.
  • Obtain proof of certification and NRPP listing, and include it with application from the next step.
  • Submit certification application, along with the non-refundable fee to the Kansas Department of Health.
  • Kansas Radon Real Estate Requirements

    Does the state of Kansas require radon testing for all real estate transactions? No

    However both the state of Kansas and the EPA recommend that a home or residence should be tested before a real estate transaction is carried out. Even though Kansas does not require radon testing, we certainly recommend you have a test performed before you purchase a home. If you decide to perform a test after and find elevated levels, there is no reason to panic. Kansas radon mitigation is not expensive compared to the dangers and a system can be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
