What is Radon? Should I be concerned? Yes, you should be concerned. Many homes in Iowa have higher than accepted levels of Radon.
Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that can seep into our homes unknowingly and it’s as harmful as smoking. It’s up to us to test. Your house is still closed up for the winter and it’s a perfect time to test for radon! Pick up your test kit at the Winneshiek County Public Health office at 305 Montgomery St. Do the simple test to get your results. Then talk with area radon mitigators about how to rid or reduce your home radon levels. Give yourself peace of mind and start the new year off healthier!
