January is National Radon Action Month, a whole month dedicated to not only raising awareness of the harms of radon but a month meant to encourage others to get their homes tested. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Each year more than 20,000 people die from radon-induced lung cancer. 

To learn how you can take action this month and ensure that your home and the home of your loved ones are safe, check out our free resources below! To learn more about radon in general, see our Radon Information page here.

Get Your Home Tested

You can order many radon testing kits online, or find them in your local home improvement store. Be sure to read the directions carefully for proper placement and where to send your device afterward to find your home's radon level.

If you'd like to have a service test your home for radon (though we recommend ordering a kit due to the current COVID-19 pandemic), you can contact the NC Radon Program for more information on testing services here.
