The Silent Killer

Radon

What is radon?

Radon is a tasteless, odorless gas that makes it’s presence in 1 of every 15 homes across the country. The silent radioactive killer surfaces naturally from the ground, entering the cracks and crevices of your floor and foundation into your home.

 

Why test for radon?

While Taking more then 20,000 lives each year, and remaining the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. testing for radon is the only way to assure your family’s exposure to the silent killer. With some of the highest radon levels in the country right here in Iowa, the EPA highly recommends having your home tested for radon.
