Many Utah homes have dangerously high levels of radon gas.
Many people ask "do I need to worry about radon where I live?" The truth is that your home may have high levels of radon gas no matter where you live in Utah. Radon gas can increase your risk of lung cancer, even if you have never smoked a cigarette. The good news is that you can do something about this deadly gas. Follow these steps to help keep your family safe from radon:
1. Test your home for radon gas.
2. If your test results are 4 pCi/L or higher, fix your home by installing a radon mitigation system in order to lower the levels of radon.
