State Environmental Officials Want Radon Testing To Be A New Year's Resolution

This is the time when many people make New Year's resolutions, and state environmental officials are hoping one of them is having your home tested for Radon. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that occurs naturally in all 67 counties in Pennsylvania. January is Radon Action Month, and the simplest step for homeowners is to get a Radon test kit at any hardware store or home center. If levels are above normal, you'll be advised to call in a mitigation professional. According to the EPA, Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US.
