Only living in certain areas puts you at risk for radon is one of many radon myths floating around on the internet. The truth is that you can have radon in your home regardless of where you live. Some areas are more prone to the radioactive gas than others, but it does not mean that you will not be affected.
Atmospheric conditions, soil composition and home construction all affect the ability of radon to enter the home. Your home may be in an area with less radon concern. You can only know for sure if the home has radon by having it tested periodically. The test can bring you peace of mind and enable you to enjoy your home without the adverse health risks of radon.
