What is Radon?
Where does Radon come from?
How to test for it?
Because radon gas can’t be seen or smelled, the only way to know whether it’s a problem in your home is to test for it.You can hire a professional tester, or do it yourself with a kit you buy at a hardware store or online. Follow the instructions for leaving the kit in your house for the required number of days. Then mail it to a lab and wait for the results.
What do you do if your radon levels are high?(US EPA has set an action level of 4 pCi/L)
If you find out that your radon levels are high, you can take steps to lower the amount of radon in your home. The most common method is to hire a professional to have a vent pipe system and fan installed, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside.
