Understanding the Reality of Radon in Minnesota

When it comes to protecting the health of your loved ones and maintaining the structural integrity of your home, there are various hazards to look out for. One hazard that has been gaining significant attention in recent years is radon gas. The state of Minnesota has been found to have above-average levels of radon as compared to the other states. Understanding the reality of radon in Minnesota is crucial in preventing its harmful effects on your home and loved ones. 

Minnesota has a high prevalence level of radon due to its geological composition, which comprises heavy deposits of granite and other rocks rich in radon-inducing elements like uraninite. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, nearly 2 in 5 homes in Minnesota have radon levels higher than the recommended action level of 4.0 pCi/L (picocuries per liter), putting occupants at risk of exposure to excessive levels of radon. 

Standard Water will happily give you a Radon Test Kit free of charge and help you interpret the results. If the radon levels in your home are above the recommended action level, we have a solution for you.
