Simple tests help fix radon dangers

Simple testing can help homeowners in Kewaunee and Door Counties reduce the dangers of radon.  The odorless, radioactive gas is generated by the natural decaying of uranium.  At elevated levels that can cause lung cancer even among non-smokers.  The EPA says about five-to-ten percent of Wisconsin homes have elevated levels of radon on their main floors.  Cindy Kinnard, Kewaunee County Public Health Director, says simple, inexpensive radon tests can help determine whether repair work is needed to reduce health risks.

 

 

 

January is National Radon Action Month. Radon test kits are available through local hardware and home improvement stores or can be purchased for $8.00 at the Kewaunee County Health Department on Lincoln Street in Kewaunee.
