Radon Test Kits Available

Test Your Home for Deadly Radon

Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that seeps up from the earth. Long-term exposure to radon can lead to lung cancer. In fact, radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon is present everywhere but the greatest risk of exposure is indoors, especially in your home. In Minnesota, two in five homes have radon levels that pose a significant health risk. Homes with radon can be old or new, well-sealed or drafty, with or without a basement.

Testing your home for radon is easy and inexpensive. Anoka County has residential radon test kits available for $5. To obtain a kit, go to Anoka County's website or call 763-323-5722 for more information.
