Radon can be found in any home. The only way to know is to test.

If you live in Georgia, you can order a radon test kit from UGA Extension at http://www.ugaradon.org for $13. Radon test kits are also available from some County Extension Offices for $10. Call 1-800-ASK-UGA1 for the office nearest you.  If you live in another state go the EPA website to find a radon test kit (http://www.epa.gov/radon).
