Resource for Residents: My Green Montgomery Radon Action Month

During the month of January, Montgomery County joins a nationwide effort to educate homeowners and renters on the dangers of radon gas and the importance of testing every home. January is an especially good time to test homes for radon because windows and doors are closed tightly, and people spend more time indoors. Testing typically happens in the lowest occupied level of a building since radon enters through cracks and other openings in the foundation. Radon tests are different from carbon monoxide and home smoke detectors.
