Radon Testing for your Home in Ogden
Radon gas comes from the natural decay of uranium in soil, and is found everywhere. However, past radon testing shows that Utah has elevated levels of radon. In fact, one in three homes in Ogden have what is considered high levels of radon gas by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They recommend that every home be tested for radon, and any home with levels of 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter – unit of measurement for radon) or above be fixed. Testing your home is easy, simply fill out the form to the right and a Utah Radon Services employee will reach out to send you a free radon test kit.
Once radon testing is done, if your home has high levels of radon, a radon mitigation system can be installed affordably and quickly to reduce the radon that your family is exposed to in your home.

Radon Gas and Health Concerns
A naturally occurring gas that is the result of decaying uranium in soil, radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer. While radon is found everywhere, when it is dispersed into the air outside, it is not a risk to your health. However, when this odorless, tasteless, and colorless radioactive gas accumulates in your home, it can become a health concern. 21,000 deaths each year are attributed to radon related lung cancer.
The EPA recommends that every home be tested for radon. Have yours tested today, if there is a problem, radon mitigation is an affordable solution to protect your family.
