Why test for radon gas?
Radon Gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon gas is odorless, colorless, tasteless, and can only be detected with an approved measurement testing device.
Per the EPA, approximately 1 out of every 5 homes in the US are found to have levels ABOVE the EPA Action Level. MN Dept of Health estimates 2 of every 5 in our state. The only way to know is to test. Test levels can vary between two houses, side by side, in the same neighborhood.
