Indoor Air - Radon
Radon is an invisible, odorless, radioactive gas. It is by far the greatest single source of radiation exposure to the general public.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the leading cause among nonsmokers. Performing a radon test is the only way to know if radon levels in your home are high. Elevated indoor levels are found in every state in the US, and in every county in Illinois.
From 2003 through 2011, a total of 2,560 indoor radon measurements were performed in Kendall County by licensed radon measurement professionals. 1199 of those measurements, or 47%, were found to exceed the USEPA action level of 4.0 pCi/Lz.
