Radon Testing

Radon gas comes from the decay products of uranium in the ground beneath buildings. It  seeps into your home through cracks, sumps, joints, basement drains or other tiny openings in foundations. 

Thank you for expressing an interest in the Citizens for Radioactive Radon Reduction radon exposure assessment project.

We understand that you may know a person whose life has been impacted by lung cancer. We are sorry for these unfortunate circumstances and are trying to reduce the number of persons with this all too common disease. The Citizens for Radioactive Radon Reduction, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing lung cancer due to radon, wants to help you estimate your radon exposure and the risk it poses to your health. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It can significantly increase the risk for never smokers and for smokers as well.

Donations and volunteer expert services have made it possible for us to offer Free advanced radon measurements*  individuals, their family or friends who want to know what their radon exposure is at home and what can be done about it. Because some people find current radon measurement technologies challenging to use and difficult to interpret, we are studying the effectiveness of a new, easier radon measuring method compared to those older conventional methods. We also hope that your participation may spark some interest and awareness of radon exposure and lung cancer risk in your community.  We appreciate your participation in this Pilot Project and acknowledge that your participation will likely help other persons avoid lung cancer.

*State laws or regulations requiring special approval of detectors, licenses and/or fees even for free distribution of radon detectors to home owners do not allow us to enroll participants from New Jersey, Florida and Maine. Sorry that, at this time, our budget will not allow participants in Alaska or Hawaii.
