Radon is a serious public health concern in Minnesota. The average radon level in Minnesota is more than three times higher than the U.S. radon level. This is due to our geology and how our homes are operated. Minnesota homes are closed up or heated most of the year, which can result in higher levels of radon.
In Minnesota, more than two in five homes have radon levels that pose a significant health risk. Radon tests can be self-administered with a kit or a professional can be hired to conduct the test. Source: Minnesota Department of Health.
