West Virginia is the 41st most expansive state in terms of size and the 38th most populous.

West Virginia does have 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 West Virginia are above average in many areas of the state. There’s an increased risk for all homeowners, which is why we recommend testing exposure levels at least twice a year.

West Virginia Radon Levels

Map of West Virginia 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.

West Virginia Radon Statistics

West Virginia has 55 counties and 20 (36%) 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. West Virginia's state radon zone average is 1.67, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 20 among all states.

West Virginia Radon Contractor License Information

Does West Virginia require contractors to be licensed? Yes, by the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) or National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP).

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

1. Attend and complete an approved course.

2. Take and pass the national certification examination offered through the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) or National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP).

3. Register with the state radon program.

Those looking for a radon certification can take qualified third party courses offered by the NRPP or AASRT. The state will then endorse said professionals and add them to the official directory.

West Virginia Radon Real Estate Requirements

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

However both the state of West Virginia and the EPA recommend that a home or residence should be tested before a real estate transaction is carried out. Even though West Virginia 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. West Virginia radon mitigation is not expensive compared to the dangers and a system can be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
