radon action month

Utah has one of the highest residential radon gas exposure - 1 in 3 homes vs. 1 in 15 nationally. Because of this, the Environmental Protection Agency has declared January as National Radon Action Month to try and raise awareness about this radioactive gas that is tasteless, colorless, and odorless. It occurs naturally when uranium in soil decays and is found everywhere, although Utah does have higher levels than the rest of the nation.  Radon gas exposure is also the second leading cause of lung cancer only behind smoking. Approximately 22,000 lung cancer deaths per year are attributed to radon exposure.

“Utah has the lowest smoking rate, but not the lowest lung cancer rate -  and naturally occurring radon is the reason."
Eleanor Divver, Utah Department of Environmental Quality's Indoor Radon Coordinator

Any home, whether new or old, big or small, can have a radon problem and because it does not have a smell or taste, the only way to know if your home has high radon levels is to test for it. Certified testing by a home inspector can cost over $150 or more. Because of this cost, not enough Utah residents are having their home tested. In fact, only about 1 in 5 homes that are sold in Utah currently get a radon test. Because we strongly believe that every home should be tested for radon, Utah Radon Services offers free home radon testing for your home. Within a few days we can tell you if there is a radon problem in your home and offer an affordable solution if levels are high.

January is National Radon Action Month so take action this month and have your home tested.
