Test Your Home for Radon
January is National Radon Action Month. Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas and is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It can enter your home through the foundation and floor-wall joints. Winter is the best time to test for radon.
Two in five homes tested in Minnesota have radon levels that could pose a major health risk. A radon test is the only way to find out how much radon is in your home. Free radon test kits are available to Washington County residents.
