Two in five Minnesota houses test high for radon

Radon is an invisible, odorless gas that can:

  • Enter your home through the basement
  • Come from the dirt surrounding your home's foundation

The only way to know how much radon is in your home is to do a test. You can:

  • Buy a do-it-yourself test kit at a local hardware store, or
  • Hire a licensed radon mitigation specialist
