Free radon testing kits offered to area residents
Crow Wing County and the Minnesota Department of Health recommend that all homes in Minnesota be tested for radon. It’s the only way to know if your home has an elevated level of radon, which can cause lung cancer.
Radon is an odorless, colorless and tasteless radioactive gas that occurs naturally in Minnesota soils and can enter homes through cracks and openings in basement or foundation floors and walls.
To obtain a test kit, contact the Land Services Department at 218-824-1125 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop at the department in Brainerd.
