Gainesville 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 Alachua County over 10% that we were able to acquire. Last checked: July 17th 2022:
Percentage >= 4 pCi/l
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.

Radon in Gainesville
Dominated by the University of Florida, the country's fourth-largest public university campus by enrollment, Gainesville is characterized by humid summers, swampland, and a rapidly growing population. The combination of lack of housing inventory, quickly constructed solutions, and a population that fluctuates with the school year, makes Gainesville an area of potentially high indoor air quality issues. Unless regular testing is conducted, tenants in a home or property could be exposed increased levels of radon, mold, and other indoor air quality issues without being aware.
While most of the state of Florida is considered in Zone 3 in the EPA's Map of Radon Zones, Alachua county falls in Zone 2 denoting an increased presence of ground source radon. This means, Alachua County and the town of Gainesville have both the risk of elevated levels of radon due to the presence of radon in their building materials and radon present in their ground soil under the foundation of homes and other structures.
Up until recently it was believed that there were only two sources of radon exposure – radon gas ground source seepage, and off-gassing of radon impacted groundwater. In the low ground source areas like most of Florida, 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 concrete building structures that do not have a ground source radon issue. Test results clearly show that the radon comes from the building materials and specifically from the poured concrete.
Since Gainesville sees multiple radon source type issues, our team has extensive experience combining methods of mitigation to address all possible issues with the added benefit of increasing the quality of the building's indoor air overall.
Gainesville Public School Radon Results
The Florida Department of Health publishes radon test results for state licensed, regulated, owned, or operated facilities. You can find their information linked here and in the table below. If you do not see your school in the table below it's possible a new test has been submitted since we checked on July 31st 2022. Please check the database linked above for your school. If you still do not see your school the best course of action is to call the Radon and Indoor Air Program at 850-245-4288 or 800-543-8279 or email email@example.com

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.
