A month hourly measurement of radon concentration was taken in the bedroom of a two story link house in Kuala Lumpur. The house is a typical urban house in Malaysia, constructed with bricks, concrete and cement plaster. These materials are natural sources of radon in the house. The hourly radon concentration was found to vary from 0 pCiL-1 to 3 pCiL-1. It was found to peak during early morning and to minimize in the evening. The daily average radon concentration varied from 0.2 pCiL-1 to 1.0 pCiL-1.
