Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is produced by uranium in soil and rock. Air pressure inside a home is usually lower than outside, which causes a vacuum effect that draws the radon in through cracks in the foundation. Even if there are no visible cracks in the foundation, radon can permeate through concrete to enter the house. As it accumulates in your home, and you breathe it in, it becomes a health hazard due to its radioactivity level.

Radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, and organizations including the Environmental Protection Association (EPA), World Health Organization (WHO), and Huntsman Cancer Institute all recommend having your home tested for radon. The good news is Utah Radon Services offers free radon testing!

The radon testing process is very easy. After you fill out the form on this page, a test will be mailed to your home. Once you place the test following the instructions in the test packet, you can leave it for 48 hours to collect data on the radon entering the home. After the 48 hours are up, you can use the prepaid envelope in the package to send the test to our third-party lab. Within 7–14 days, your radon test results will be emailed to you, and if your results are high, we can walk you through the mitigation process.
