Radon Test Kit

Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that you cannot smell or taste, but may be present in your home or office environment. The Surgeon General says that radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States after smoking, and is responsible for as many as 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year.

Fortunately, exposure to radon is a preventable health risk – The Environmental Protection Agency and the Office of the Surgeon General encourage all Americans to test the radon levels in their homes and offices. The recommended action level for radon is 4pCi/l. Those areas that test above this level are considered dangerous.

Check out these brochures from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for more information about radon and testing for radon:
