To reduce the risk of lung cancer, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Office of the Surgeon General recommend the lowest occupied level of all homes be tested for radon. Because radon is odorless and invisible, testing is the only way to determine if a home has high levels of radon. Testing your home is easy and inexpensive. Radon test kits are available from:
- The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Radon Education Program - $10.00
- National Radon Program Services - $15.00 - $25.00
- Hardware stores and other retail outlets – prices vary by location
