Healthy Homes


Radon is a tasteless, odorless, colorless, radioactive gas that occurs naturally in soil and rock. It enters buildings through openings in the foundation floor or walls (sump openings; crawlspaces; floor/wall joints; cracks; space around plumbing, wiring, or duct work; etc.). Any home could have a radon problem whether old or new; rural or urban; energy efficient or drafty; or built over a basement, over a crawlspace, or built slab-on-grade. It is recommended that all homes are tested. Home radon test kits are available at your local DHD#10 office for $10. Every January, Radon Awareness Month, DHD#10 provides radon test kits free of charge.
