January is Radon Action Month

Post date: Jan 14, 2015 3:33:22 PM

In Iowa all 99 counties are in Zone 1 for radon. This means our average indoor radon is more likely to be above the EPA acceptable level of 4.0 pCi/L. Radon is colorless and odorless and the only way to know if you have radon in your home is to test for it. January is Radon Action Month in Iowa and that means it is a great time to test your home!
