Radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon is odorless and colorless, so it is generally not detectible without testing. A DIY radon gas testing kit allows you to safely and easily test your work, home, or other location for the presence of dangerous radon gas. Using one of the multiple options of DIY radon test kits is a safe, simple, inexpensive home radon testing method for your living or work space.
