January Marks National Radon Action Month
National Radon Action Month is dedicated to spreading awareness of what radon is, how it can impact indoor air quality, and the effects it can have on an individual’s health.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and can enter a home in many ways, such as cracks in solid floors, construction joints, cracks in walls, gaps in suspended floors, gaps around service pipes, and cavities inside walls, including sump pits that are not hermetically sealed. The best line of defense in preventing radon exposure in your home is to test for radon. Call Linn County Public Health at 319-892-6000 or stop by the office at 1020 6th St. SE Cedar Rapids, IA 52401 to get your radon test kits today.
