Michigan Indoor Radon Program
Michigan Indoor Radon Program
Did you know that one in every four Michigan homes is expected to have radon levels that exceed the recommended federal action level? This matters because radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, behind smoking. You can't see, smell or taste radon. The only way to know if you have elevated radon levels is to test.
Protect yourself. Get Your Radon Test Kit or contact us for more information at 800-723-6642 (800-RADONGAS)!
Testing is recommended every two years because homes settle, new cracks form in the foundation and radon levels can change. If test results show radon levels at or above 4 pCi/L, the USEPA recommends installing a radon mitigation system. This system grabs the radon before it ever enters the home and vents it outside.
EPA extends public comment deadline to June 21st for proposed criteria for radon credentialing organizations
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released Proposed Radon Credentialing Criteria, composed of an Evaluation Framework and Implementation Approach. These criteria will help align and encourage consistency across radon credentialing programs and help ensure consumer protection and protect public health. The criteria are designed to support establishment and maintenance of a base level of organizational and program-specific competencies, grounded in third-party accreditation to ISO/IEC 17024:2012, while maintaining flexibility for state-run programs. The comment period closes June 21, 2023.
