What you need to know about RADON

Licking County has the highest radon levels in Ohio. Radon test results performed by Licking County homeowners indicated nearly three out of four homes have radon levels above the EPA action level of 4.0 pCi/L. For this reason, the Health Department has obtained a federal matching grant to provide radon education and free test kits to county residents. The LCHD has two Certified Radon Testers on staff.

Radon is a naturally occurring, invisible, odorless gas that is harmlessly dispersed in outdoor air; but when trapped in buildings, can be harmful at elevated levels. The USEPA has determined that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S., second to smoking. However, because you can’t see or smell radon, people tend to minimize the health effects and ignore the possibility it might exist in elevated levels in their homes.

You can have a free radon test kit mailed to your home BY CLICKING HERE.
