Radon Testing Recommended

The Fond du Lac County Health Department is urging residents to test their homes for radon gas. Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas, which can enter your home through cracks in the foundation, openings around joints and pipes, and dirt floors. Radon can build to high levels inside your home, and long term exposure to these high levels of radon is a risk for lung cancer. Test kits are available at the County Health Department Offices in Fond du Lac for $10, which includes radon information and lab fees. January is national radon action month.
