Should I test for radon?
In the U.S., the presence of radon in homes is both common — and deadly.
Elevated radon levels have been discovered in every state. The EPA estimates that as many as 8 million homes throughout the country have elevated levels, and current state surveys show the occurrence to affect 1 in every 5 homes. However, there are no immediate symptoms that can alert you to radon’s presence. It typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface.
The only way to find out is to test.
The EPA, Surgeon General, American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and National Safety Council all recommend testing your home for radon. It’s easy to do, and it’s the only effective way to mitigate this widespread environmental health problem and protect your family.
