January 1st not only marked the beginning of the New Year, it marked the beginning of National Radon Action Month! Radon is an invisible odorless gas that cannot be detected without conducting the proper tests. Most people realize that radon is dangerous but they do not fully understand how dangerous it can be. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency credits Radon gas for the death of over 20,000 Americans annually.
Testing for Radon is a simple cost effective way to protect you and your family. You can purchase a home radon test kit, or hire one of your local professionals to test your home and fix any problems if necessary. So get your home tested today, and don’t let Radon be your silent killer!
