Radon exposure is a health hazard with a simple solution. Radon is an invisible, odorless radioactive gas in the earth that can enter into lower level rooms of your home, like a basement. The longer you and your family are exposed to radon, the greater risk you have of developing lung cancer. Testing for radon is easy, affordable and the best way to protect your family from exposure. Radon test kits are available at home improvement stores or online.
If you are a contractor or local health department help us spread the word about the risks of radon in your home. We've created a toolkit to assist your in reaching out to the communities and customers you work with. Feel free to download any of the following for your own radon awareness outreach use:
