As is the case with many gasses, radon is invisible and odorless, so regular testing is the only way to be sure it isn’t causing a potential issue in your home.

If you prefer to handle the testing process yourself, you can find a variety of kits for sale at your favorite hardware store, but many people elect to have professionals handle the job instead. In the event you do find out radon is present in high enough levels to cause a potential issue, you can decide on an action plan. A ventilation system complete with a fan and pipes is among the most common ways to keep radon levels low.
