Radon Information

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among people who do not smoke, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer for people who do smoke. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas released in rock, soil and water that can build up to dangerous levels inside any home. Radon gas is odorless and invisible and the only way to know if your home has radon is to test for it.

  1. Contact your State Radon Program Coordinators. They can provide you with additional information on radon, including a list of local certified and licensed (where applicable) radon testers and mitigation contractors.
  2. Where can I get a Radon Test Kit?
