Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. Any home can have a radon problem, including new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. Radon Testing is so important because your family is most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time. For more information check out EPA Radon Page.
Radon testing is easy and the only way to find out if you have a radon problem in your home. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. If you find that you have high radon levels, there are ways to fix a radon problem. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.
