Image of the cover od the book "Protecting you home from Radon" If you plan to fix the problem in your home yourself, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health and Nevada Radon Education Program purchased and distributed a copy of the book, "Protecting Your Home From Radon," Second Edition, D. L. Kladder with Dr. J. F. Burkhart and S. R. Jelinek, ISBN 0-9639434-0-5, to every public library in Nevada. This do-it-yourself book is for consumers to install a radon mitigation system themselves or to become familiar with how a contractor will do the installation. This book provides instruction for the process of reducing radon for a variety of different foundation types.

The detailed manual describes the most common methods for reliably reducing radon in a home. Written in a non-technical format, the book includes step-by-step instructions and illustrations to guide homeowners through the radon mitigation process.
