Additional Information
Radon is an odorless and colorless gas that naturally occurs in rock and soil.  It can seep into homes from the soil through cracks in the basement floors and foundations, crawl spaces, poorly sealed sump pumps, porous cinder block walls and other foundation floor and wall penetrations.


Immediate radon reduction steps:
Fill or seal any cracks, crevices or holes in the foundation
Provide a gastight cap for the sump pit
Maintain a water level in trapped floor drains


Short-term test kits are available through the Health Department for $10. The cost includes return postage, laboratory analysis and interpretation by Health Department staff. The kits are available from area hardware and building supply stores or you can request a kit by submitting an email request. For more information on purchasing a kit, call: 847.377.8030.
