Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas and is the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. It can enter your home through the foundation and floor-wall joints. Winter is the best time to test for radon.

2 in 5 homes tested in Minnesota have radon levels that could pose a major health risk. You can purchase a test kit at any time from Ramsey County for only $2.
