The District Department of the Environment (DDOE) is offering FREE Radon testing kits to help DC residents maintain safe and healthy homes. According to the EPA and the District Department of the Environment, radon cannot be seen, smelled or tasted, but it may be a problem in your home. Radon is a pollutant that comes from the natural radioactive breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and can enter the air we breathe. Radon has been found in homes all over the United States, including the District of Columbia.

 

The kit is easy to use--simply place it in your home for two days and then send it to a lab for analysis in the kit's postage-prepaid package. If the results are positive, a list of abatement companies will be provided. The severity of radon contamination will determine how much it will cost to get rid of the problem.
