Radon and Indoor Air Program
The radon program has been modified over time to encompass all indoor environmental airborne toxins. A major threat to the health of Floridians is the quality of the indoor air.

This can lead to wider spread indoor environmental problems as compared to more temperate areas where people live with open homes for longer parts of the year. Helping the public control the health threat from indoor air toxins through education and consultation is a major part of this program.
This program is composed of two main parts:
