You can’t see, taste or smell radon, but the radioactive gas can kill. And it could be in your home. That’s why the Kent County Health Department is offering free radon testing kits to residents.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated January as national Radon Action Month.
“Radon is colorless, tasteless and odorless. And there’s really no short-term health effects. Radon kind of affects you in the long-term.”
Brendan Earl is the Supervising Sanitarian with the Kent County Health Department.
