Working to protect Utahns from the dangers of radon

Together, we can increase radon awareness in Utah

What is radon and why should you care?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that can infiltrate your home through even the smallest pores in the foundation. Due to Utah’s unique geography, this invisible threat is found at dangerous levels in over half of Utah homes. After prolonged radon exposure, the health of you and your loved ones (and, yes, even your pets) is at risk as radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers.

Testing your home for radon is essential. Take care of your indoor air quality today and request a free radon test below.

Radon levels in Utah

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is created when uranium decays. Utah has high levels of uranium in the ground, leading to high levels of radon throughout the state. Long-term exposure to high levels of radon indoors can lead to serious health risks, including lung cancer. In fact, 21,000 Americans, and an estimated 200-300 Utahns, die annually from radon-induced lung cancer.
