There is a great brochure created by the Minnesota Department of Health, "Keeping You Safe from Radon". In Minnesota 2 in 5 homes have high radon. It is estimated that 21,000 people die each year in the United States from lung cancer due to radon exposure. A radon test is the only way to know how much radon is in your home. Radon can be reduced with a mitigation system.
Radon is a serious public health concern in Minnesota. The average radon level in Minnesota is more than three times higher than the U.S. radon level. This is due to our geology and how our homes are operated. Minnesota homes are closed up or heated most of the year, which can result in higher levels of radon. I am licensed in the state of MN for radon measurement. Contact West Egg today to have your home measured for levels of radon.
