Extreme Makeover Home Edition on Radon Gas

In our staff meeting today, we discussed a recent episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition that involved a home contaminated with radon gas. We feel it would be valuable to our readers.

Radon gas is a naturally occurring gaseous element that causes cancer. View this recent episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition to find out more about why the detection and remediation of this element in your home is so important. (You have to click the link, go to the left menu, click Extreme Makeover Home Edition, THEN click Miller Family episode.)

Minnesota ranks in the moderate to high range of contamination of this gas in our homes. That doesn’t mean every home has it, or that every home is at dangerous levels. It’s better to know than not know. Even if you had a radon inspection at the time of your purchase, levels can fluctuate, so ongoing testing every couple of years couldn’t hurt. Check out the EPA’s info on radon to be a better informed consumer.

Also note – the next new episode is about a family in Plymouth, MN airing November 25th at 8pm Central time on ABC. It’s a 2-parter and the 100th episode!
