Louisiana Radon Levels
EPA Radon Levels
Louisiana has 61 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. Louisiana's state radon zone average is 3, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 50 among all states.
The radon levels in Louisiana are about average. A quick glance at previous test results shows that many of the readings were lower than the EPA designated action level. That being said there’s an increased risk for all homeowners, which is why we recommend testing exposure levels at least twice a year.

Louisiana Radon Contractor License Information

Louisiana Radon Real Estate Requirements
Does the state of Louisiana require radon testing for all real estate transactions? No
However both the state of Louisiana and the EPA recommend that a home or residence should be tested before a real estate transaction is carried out. Even though Louisiana 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. Louisiana radon mitigation is not expensive compared to the dangers and a system can be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
Louisiana Radon Map
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

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.
Louisiana is the 31st most expansive state and the 25th most populous. The state does not have an active radon program. You can, however find more information about Radon, testing and mitigation at the Department of Environmental Quality page.
