[ARCHIVED] National Radon Action Month

National Radon Action Month

January is Radon National Radon Action Month. 

During January, the U.S. Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urges all Americans to protect their health by testing their homes for radon. 

Radon is a natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell, or taste but could be present at a dangerous level in your home. As the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., and the first leading cause among non-smokers, radon claims more than 20,000 lives annually. If a high radon level is detected in your home, it can be fixed through mitigation.
