January is National Radon Action Month and the state of Utah is urging citizens to have their homes tested for radon. “It is so important to have homes tested,” shares Radon Coordinator Eleanor Divver. “People have heard of radon but don’t realize it is the number one cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. You can’t see it, can’t smell it, and can’t taste it. The only way to know if you have it is by testing our home.” Thankfully, testing a home is simple and affordable with test kits available for only $9 each. All homes, new and old, can have high levels of radon and the only way to know for sure is by testing for it. Divver also says winter is the best time to perform a test because the ground is frozen and doors and windows mostly remain closed. Order your kit at www.radon.utah.gov.
