Radon
 
You Can't See It     
You Can't Smell It    
You Can't Taste It
 
But it May Be In Your Home.
 
The only way to know if radon is in your home is to test for it.
 
The Siouxland District Health Department sells short term test kits year round for $7. The cost of the kits include the testing, postage and receiving of results. Testing is recommended every 2 years for homes with or without a mitigation system.
