The Tennessee Department of Environment is offering complimentary radon test kits online this month.
The department is also educating Tennesseans about the dangers of radon exposure.
“It is important to test your home since radon acts unpredictably,” said TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau. “It is a naturally occurring gas that can seep into homes through cracks and openings in the foundation and cannot be seen, tasted or smelled.”
