Homeowners urged to test for radon

Radon test kits are available for $5 throughout January which is National Radon Action Month at Oakland County Health Division offices in Pontiac and Southfield

"You can't see or smell radon, so testing is the only way to know how high the radon levels are in your home", said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, MD, FACOG. Prolonged exposure to radon is responsible for 505 deaths annually in Colorado, according to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that occurs naturally from the breakdown of uranium. Soil in central OH can have high levels of radon gas, and it can seep into homes. Radon gives off radioactive particles that, when breathed in, can damage the lining of the lungs.

A natural chemical that emits from rocks and soil, radon levels inside the home tend to increase significantly during the winter months when doors and windows stay shut. "It would be less likely to find radon in that soil, but it shows you how the whole state of Colorado is at risk".

Radon levels vary throughout CT. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that one in 15 homes nationwide has an elevated level of radon (a level at or above the action level). And since radon levels can change from year to year, you should test every couple of years to make sure your system is working properly.

Testing for radon is a simple process. Testing a home for radon is easy and can put all owners', sellers', and buyers' minds at ease. Radon is also found in building materials and in well water.

Testing can be completed in a Do-It-Yourself fashion. "We encourage everyone to test their homes because levels can vary drastically from home to home". These tests provide a better idea of what you home's year-round average radon level is.

If your home registers high levels of radon, it can be removed from your home through a variety of mitigation systems.
