Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and claims about 20,000 lives annually.
Nebraska has a very high prevalence of radon in homes. One out of every two radon tests conducted in the state is elevated. Homes with an annual average radon level at or above 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) should be mitigated to reduce radon levels.
