The Health Department can provide radon test kits for a minimal fee to test the level of Radon in your home. Results are sent to you within 2-4 weeks. Radon is a naturally occurring, odorless radioactive gas that enters buildings from the ground. Homes with high levels are found in all regions of Wisconsin. The levels vary greatly within neighborhoods, so everyone should test their home.
Carbon monoxide is a gas that cannot be seen or smelled. Carbon monoxide (CO) is caused by burning fuels. If not vented correctly or if appliances malfunction, CO can build up inside your home. Teach your family to respond immediately if your CO detector sounds. Take immediate action and get fresh air, call your local fire department and have your home inspected.
