Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas produced by the natural decay of uranium in the soil. It is the number one leading cause of lung cancer in non-smoking adults and for this reason, the Floyd County Health Department urges residents to test their homes for radon. The Health Department has a limited number of FREE Radon Test Kits for Floyd County Residents. For more information on how to request a free Radon test kit for your home, please contact our department at 812-948-4726, press option 2, option 1.
