January is National Radon Action Month – a great time to learn more about the risks of elevated indoor radon gas. Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that can build up in your home regardless of its age, foundation type, or location. Exposure to radon gas may increase your risk for lung cancer, but the only way to know if elevated levels exist in your home is to do a radon test.
You can obtain a radon test kit for $7.95 by visiting www.ohio.radon.com. Free kits are also available by visiting www.radon.com/rapca and entering coupon code RAPCA-23.
For more information on radon gas in your home, visit www.epa.gov/radon or call Kelli Steward with the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency at 937-225-4898.
