It’s common to hear many myths about radon, including the idea that this issue only affects certain parts of the country. Actually, there are homes with radon from sea to shining sea. Homeowners in California, Minnesota, Texas, Miami and New York all have to remember to test for radon from time to time. True, many homes never experience problems with radon, but it’s still a good idea to play it safe.

Are Certain Areas More Likely To Have Radon?

The soil makeup of different areas can make them more likely to have radon present, but there’s no “map” that you can look at to see if that’s the case where you live. The best option (and the quickest) is to schedule radon testing with a pro or use a test kit yourself. The process is easy, and it gives you trustworthy results.
