Summit County

It’s an odorless, tasteless, gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. All reasons why you might want to test your home for radon.

Radon claims 21,000 lives in the U.S. each year, Kelly Gallo of the Summit County health department explains what radon is.

“It’s Uranium as it decays and so the gases are just naturally there. It seeps into our homes through cracks and crevices and our foundation. The only way that you’re going to know whether you really do have that in your home is if you test for it.”
