Free workshop on reducing radon in your home

One out of every three houses in Colorado has elevated levels of radon, which is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Now a group in Pueblo is offering a free workshop to help people learn how to install a radon mitigation system.

Experts says a radon removal system can be installed for around $1,000. This workshop is designed to help people who can't afford to hire a certified mitigation specialist.

The workshop will be held Wednesday April 28, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Business Tech Center, 301 N. Main St. If you want to attend the meeting you must RSVP to PuebloCares  at 719-252-6258

Experts say the only way to know if you have radon in your home, is to test for it.
