If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
Radon can be found all over the U.S. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Radon can get into any type of building such as: homes, offices, and schools. This can result in a high indoor radon level. Families are most likely to get their greatest exposure at home, where they spend most of their time.
* Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003). The numbers of deaths from other causes are taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's 1999-2001 National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Report and 2002 National Safety Council Reports.

Easier to use than I had anticipated. Results came back very quickly. It is just a sack of charcoal that you leave out and then mail in.

Instructions were clear, and somewhat easy to follow. Packaging for return was good, and the whole process took just several day. I look forward to getting results in the mail.

Reviewer: Lawrence Grupp
The First Alert Radon Test Kit was all inclusive and very easy to use. The lab fees were pre-paid, and I had results within 8 days of mailing. In addition, the First Alert Store shipped quickly and responded very well to my order.
Do not use the Radon Gas Test Kit near heat or air conditioning registers, fans, or other places where it will be subjected to constant moving air. Keep it out of direct sunlight, away from heated sources, places of high humidity and out of the reach of children.
Radon gas can be found in: Cinder-block, brick or rock wall, exposed soil in the basement or foundation, cracks in the basement wall or foundation, an open sump pump hole or floor drain, spaces between walls and floors, exposed pipes or loose pipe fittings.
