Fact Sheet - Lung Cancer Screening for Radon Exposure History

Engineering Extension at Kansas State University has developed this fact sheet with review and input from numerous resources in the radon community. We welcome feedback to improve the information available to the public about radon risks. Work remains to be done in terms of screening recommendations and we hope that will happen soon so guidance can be updated.  You are welcome to make copies and use the document appropriately. We hope this will help with meeting the needs of those serving the public to reduce radon exposure risks.

Fact Sheet on Lung Cancer Screening for Radon Exposure

Reducing Radon In Your Home

Reducing Radon in Your Home

Reliable techniques exist for reducing radon levels in homes. Experience with radon mitigation systems has developed to the point that virtually any home can be fixed, either by a trained radon contractor, or in some cases, by homeowners who accomplish the repairs themselves. One out of 15 (6%) homes nationally may have elevated indoor radon levels that should be lower.  The percentage of elevated homes in your state may be much higher. The only way to know a house is elevated is to test.
