It is important to for Radon testing to be completed in homes, office buildings, condominiums, schools and other structures that people live in Michigan.

Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the U.S. You cannot see, taste, or smell radon so testing is the only way to find out the levels of radon in a home. The EPA and Surgeon General say breathing radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and if you smoke, your risk is even higher.

Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air in a home through cracks and other holes in the foundation such as sump well.  Any home can have high levels of radon. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.
