The month of January is recognized as National Radon Action Month and the St. Clair County Health Department is providing free radon kits to residents during the month. Radon is a naturally-occurring, radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of radium, found in soil and rock. Outdoors, radon is diluted by the atmosphere to safe levels. However, radon can concentrate in indoor air and lead to elevated and harmful radon levels. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk for health issues caused by radon, an invisible, odorless gas.
