Fort Myers Radon Levels by Zip Code
The Florida Health department has created a great database, linked here, of radon test results as reported by certified radon businesses and facilities per Florida Statute 404.056. This tool allows you to see the percentage of radon tests that returned greater than a 4 pCi/L result. The EPA recommends homes and properties be mitigated if the level of radon is above 4 pCi/L.
Below are some of the zip codes in Lee County over 10% that we were able to acquire. Last checked: July 17th 2022:

Per the Florida Department of Health: This radon data does not represent a scientific or statistical survey; therefore, it should be interpreted with caution. The data provides an indication of the radon potential within a zip code if a large enough and properly distributed number of buildings have been tested and reported for the area. This data cannot be used to predict the radon level for existing or new construction. Structural features, construction details, and ventilation operations differ from building to building and greatly influence radon concentration. Structures within the same zip code may have dramatically different indoor radon levels due to these differences. Inferring indoor radon levels for untested buildings based on indoor radon data from tested buildings is not possible.

Despite its sunny reputation, a recent study of the Florida housing market shows a massive surge in housing cost due to the influx of new residents (Berman, 2022) with Fort Myers listed as one of the top in the state of Florida for overvalued properties (Regan, 2022). With rising costs, it is more important than ever to ensure your investment is a good one. Finding a radon issue or other indoor air quality issue after the purchase of a new home or property is finalized could be a financial nightmare.
In Fort Myers we see the most significant radon problem in condominium, apartments, and high-rise structures where large volumes of formed in-place concrete are used and where large concrete surface areas are present in close proximity to building occupants living in the individual units.
Up until recently it was believed that there were only two sources of exposure – radon gas ground source seepage, and off-gassing of radon impacted groundwater. In the low ground source areas such as Fort Myers, it was generally assumed that radon was not a major concern and not one that would warrant mandatory testing associated real estate transactions, etc. Today we are finding highly elevated radon levels in many Fort Myers concrete building structures. Test results clearly show that the radon comes from the building materials and specifically from the poured concrete.
EnviroHome specializes in testing and mitigation of radon emanating from building materials. We provide testing, diagnosis, and full scale mitigation plans overseen by certified radon experts, licensed professional engineers, and licensed general contractors to ensure the radon levels in your property are at healthy levels.

Per the Florida Department of Health: Radon Testing is required for State licensed, regulated, owned or operated Facilities. This requirement is the same for all buildings in facilities required to be tested for radon per Florida Statue 404.056. Currently all buildings in a facility that are used by the clients of the facility are required to be tested twice, five years apart. Once tested twice, testing is no longer required unless one of the triggering events occurs:
1) a building is subject to significant structural renovation or a change in facility operation equivalent to a building structural change, or
2) the facility legally becomes a new facility. Examples of a legally new facility would be the issuance of a new license, or there could be a change in ownership or operator. If a facility operator failed to complete the required testing in any building by the time it was due, the testing should be completed as soon as is practical.
