The holiday season is one full of fun and festivities, but it also tends to be terribly busy! This is definitely true for shipping and mailing services. According to a note we received from the USPS, they are expecting their “busiest weeks to the be the two weeks before Christmas” – meaning the start of this week – and have 10% more mail to deliver than last year!

To help out our busy carriers and to avoid possible mail delays, we encourage you to wait to test your home until after the first of the year. Our kits are time sensitive and must be received back in our labs within 10 days of being sealed up (i.e. the test being stopped) in order to get good results! Your kit is more likely encounter delays around this time of year, so if it’s possible to wait, we recommend it.
