Radon is an invisible, radioactive gas created from natural deposits of uranium in the ground. Radon gas can be drawn into a building and build up to levels that can cause a health concern. Finding high levels of radon in the home has nothing to do with the age, quality, or upkeep of the home.

To test your home, radon test kits can be accessed at the Itasca County Health & Human Services Department or at the Itasca County Courthouse in Environmental Services as available. Please email Julie Purdum or call her at 218-327-2941 for more information on how to access a test kit.
