Free Radon Testing

Farmington Valley Health District is working with the Department of Public Health (DPH) to provide information and FREE testing kits for Radon to families within the Farmington Valley Health District.  The winter, when homes are closed, is the best time to test.

Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas released in rock, soil and water due to the breakdown of uranium in the rock.  Radon levels in the outside air pose a low threat to human health. However, radon can enter homes from surrounding soil and become a health hazard inside buildings where levels may accumulate.

You cannot see, smell or taste radon.  The only way to know if there are elevated levels of radon is to test.  Exposure to radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers in America, so it is important that you test your home for radon levels.

FVHD is pleased to offer FREE radon testing kits to all families that live in the Farmington Valley Health District.  You can collect your kit by coming to our office: 95 River Rd, Canton, CT, 06019.
