Health Department Encourages Radon Testing

Posted: Updated:

You can't see it or smell it, but the dangerous gas, radon, could be lurking in your home.

January is Radon Action Month, and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan is working to spread the word.

The health department, with offices in Bellaire, Charlevoix, Harbor Springs and Gaylord, has test kits people can buy to see if the gas is in your home.

They say this is a good time to test for radon since the house is closed up.

The health department says to put the test on the lowest level of your home, you actually live in.

If your home tests positive for radon, there are contractors you can call to fix the problem.
