January is both Kansas Radon Action Month and National Radon Action Month (sponsored nationally by the EPA).
Radon is a natural, tasteless, odorless, colorless, radioactive gas produced from the decay of uranium found in nearly all soils. Radon gas moves from the ground under and around your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the U.S. is esti-mated to have elevated radon levels. The only way to know the radon level in your home is to test.
