Radon is a colorless, odorless naturally occurring radioactive gas that threatens the health of our citizens. Radon is the second cause of lung cancer deaths in the US and the number one cause among non-smokers. Nearly half of all homes in Gunnison County have high radon levels. Any home may have elevated levels, even if neighboring homes do not. Testing is simple and inexpensive.
