Granite and Radon- Who Knew?
I've often wondered why that expensive granite was kept outside to be exposed to the elements.... it's due to the off gassing of radon.
Granite isn't porous. Due to that fact, the EPA states that the radon should be low that is off-gassed. However some kitchens that were tested reported 25 times the EPA limit.
If you have granite counter tops, it's a good idea to test the room where the granite was installed and also test your basement and/or crawl space too.
Radon tests can usu
ally be picked up Lowe's or Home Depot.
