Test your home for radon

Radon is a naturally occurring gas to which humans are most commonly exposed through the soil beneath their homes. Prolonged exposure to radon can increase one’s chances of developing lung cancer. If you have not already done so or don’t have a recent radon test from the previous owner of your home, or your landlord, have a radon test performed. If your home tests high for radon, follow the American Lung Association’s guidelines on what to do next. It may involve having a professional install a radon mitigation system, which contains a series of parts aimed at minimizing how much radon enters your home.
