Certified Radon offering test kits at no charge for homeowners during Radon Action Month

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named January “National Radon Action Month” to raise awareness of the dangers caused by the naturally occurring radioactive gas. Radon is undetectable by smell, sight, or taste and long-term exposure can cause devastating health issues. The U.S. Surgeon General and American Lung Association have named radon exposure as the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States (the number one cause among non-smokers), resulting in up to 21,000 deaths each year. The Kansas City region falls within the EPA’s Zone 1, signifying dangerously high levels of radon are present across the area. On average, one of every three homes in the Kansas City area test above recommended safe levels.

Certified Radon is a regional company that has been providing radon testing and mitigation services since 2008. With nearly ten years of testing data from thousands of properties across the area, Certified Radon’s data supports the EPA findings. As part of Certified Radon’s efforts to educate the public about radon facts and testing solutions that can protect the health of their homes and families, they are offering free short-term test kits that homeowners can use to test their homes themselves. Free test kits are available by registering with Certified Radon at while supplies last (limit one per household). Testing at least every two years by an industry-certified professional is recommended for the most reliable results. This is important, given research showing that children and those with lung ailments, including asthma, can be more susceptible to the harmful effects of radon. Certified Radon has professionally trained technicians who conduct thorough testing of properties to determine risk. If radon is present above levels deemed safe by the EPA, they can install mitigation systems to remove radon from the property.
