Health officials urge people to check homes for radon

January is Radon Action Month.

LaSalle County Health Educator Jenny Barrie is asking people to check their homes to see if there’s radon in the air.

The Health Dept. is offering free radon test kits.

If your home tests positive for the naturally occurring gas, Barrie says to contact a radon reduction expert.

Radon reduction could include a vent that routes air from below your home to the outdoors.
