A sobering fact during National Radon Action Month: nearly half of all homes in Washtenaw County contain high levels of radon gas.
Radon is a potentially harmful gas. It is tasteless, colorless, and odorless.
Angela Parsons is Washtenaw County's Environmental Health Education Coordinator. She says there's no easy way to determine if a house has radon other than to test for it.
Washtenaw County Public Health is offering radon test kits for half price this month.
Kits cost $5 and are available at the Western County Service Center.
Where can I get a long-term radon test kit?
- Washtenaw County Environmental Health has alpha-track test kits available at our office for $20 each, which includes the cost of postage and laboratory analysis. The test kits can be purchased at the Western County Service Center. Test kits can also be mailed to you for an additional $2 to cover postage and handling. For questions or to order a test kit by mail, please call (734) 222-3869.
- To order an alpha track detector online, visit Landauer, Accustar Labs or RSSI.
