Radon hotline offers tips for homeowners

From the National Safety Council comes word of two hotlines (and low-cost test kits) for homeowners worried about radon gas.
Chances are your kitchen countertop is free from radon, even if it is granite – and despite the potential link between radon and granite countertops that’s been in the news. For people who have concerns or questions about radon and want to test the air quality of their homes, the National Safety Council issues a reminder that its toll-free Radon Hotline is available at (800) 767-7236. Through this automated number, callers can order a brochure that contains information on radon and ordering a low-cost short-term test kit. Or, to speak to National Safety Council radon expert, callers can dial another toll-free number, (800) 557-2366. Specialists are on hand to answer questions from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Eastern) on business days.
It's a good resource for dealers, retailers, and builders who want to answer customer questions.
