Radon testing recommended after earthquakes

Health and Wellness Home and Garden

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service is reminding the public that seismic activity and shifting ground may affect radon levels in your home.

Homeowners should retest for radon after major earthquakes or floods, even if their homes have been tested before. The radioactive gas is the second leading cause of cancer, after smoking.

Contact the Alaska Radon Hotline at 1-800-478-8324 for more information on how to get a test kit.
