Radon Testing: General Information
Radon is a natural radioactive gas that can enter your home from nearly all types of soil or through well water. According to the EPA radon ranks “as its greatest environmental problem in terms of potential cancer deaths per year, a more severe risk than hazardous waste and toxic chemicals. EPA, the Surgeon General, and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health recommend that every homeowner, not just those buying or selling homes, test for radon.”
To test for radon, you must contact the lab to obtain a sample kit.
