What's New

Free radon test kits are available to Maryland residents from the State Departments of Health and the Environment. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. Radon gas could be present in your home. Breathing it in over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to your family. An easy to use test kit can tell you if you have a radon problem. If your home hasn't been tested for radon gas in the past 2-3 years, order a test kit now. For more information on radon, check out our Frequently Asked Questions (PDF).
