What is radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that occurs naturally in soil and rock, and moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and has been found in many Cape Cod homes.
Why should I test my home for radon?
The most significant cause of radon exposure is in the home because that is where we spend most of our time. The only way to know if radon is in your home is to test for it.
How can I get my home tested for radon?
RSVP Senior Environment Corps (SEC) volunteers will be conducting home radon testing for any homeowner on Cape Cod and the Islands. SEC volunteers have been trained to conduct your radon test in a way designed to provide the most accurate results.
