Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and just like smoking, radon poisoning can be easily and completely prevented by testing your home for radon. Waiting to test your home for radon can place your health (or your families health) at risk.

Should You Test Your House For Radon Gas?

Every home should be tested for radon. Radon levels cannot be predicted based on state, city, or neighborhood that you live in. Do not rely on radon test results taken in your neighbors home to estimate the radon level in your home. Homes right next door to each other can have drastically different radon levels. Testing for radon is the ONLY WAY to find out what your home's radon level is.

Utah's soil contains 5 times higher concentrations of uranium and radium than the average level in the United States. The decay of that uranium is what supplies a constant source of radon. Utah has higher than average level of radon in homes, with 1 in 3 homes having levels that are considered a health risk by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Exposure to radon gas is a health risk that you can easily avoid. Testing your home for radon is a quick and easy process through Utah Radon Services.
