January is Radon Awareness Month: Have you tested?

Radon is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that can have serious health consequences. It is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. When there are high levels of radon present in your home, you are at a higher risk of developing cancer. January is National Radon Awareness Month. Winter is an excellent time for Johnson County residents to test their homes for radon gas.
