Nebraska Radon Program
The DHHS Radon Program no longer sells radon test kits from the office in Lincoln. However, existing partnerships allow Nebraskans to obtain a free or low-cost test kit when they want to test radon levels in a home. Nebraska law allows individuals to test the home where they reside for radon without a license. Testing any other property requires a license issued by DHHS. Ownership of the property does not provide an exemption from the licensure requirement.
DHHS recommends that homes involved in a real estate transaction have radon measurements performed by a licensed radon professional.
Some local public health departments and other non-profit organizations distribute radon test kits to area residents. To see if an organization near you is participating, click here.
Purchasing Test Kits
Some manufacturers offer special pricing for Nebraska residents when purchasing a radon test kit. The DHHS Radon Program provides this list as a service to the citizens of Nebraska, but we do not endorse one manufacturer/laboratory over another. We have tried to ensure that the information below is accurate, however you should confirm pricing prior to purchase.
