Fulton County Cooperative Extension offers assistance to homeowners concerned about radon

ATLANTA -- According to the University of Georgia College of Family & Consumer Sciences, although radon is present throughout the environment, when high levels of radon enter a home or building, people are exposed to more of its radiation and their risk of cancer increases. Such a situation can easily be discovered and corrected.  Fulton County Cooperative Extension offers assistance to concerned homeowners to identify potential harm from the dangerous radioactive gas.

“Radon is colorless, odorless and tasteless,” states Menia Chester, Director of Fulton County Cooperative Extension. “A radon test is the only way to find out how much radon is in your home.”
