Radon is an odorless and colorless gas that is a byproduct of the decay of uranium. Radon seeps through openings in a home. Indoor radon levels are normally at the highest in the winter or colder months. The only way to know if your house has high levels of radon is to test it through a radon test kit. Radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Homes that are found to have radon can be mitigated to reduce or eliminate exposure.
City of Greenfield Residents can purchase Radon Test Kits for $7.
