HACKETTSTOWN, NJ – In light of recent news concerning the possibility that granite countertops may contain dangerously high levels of radon, the National Kitchen and Bath Assn. recommends that consumers planning to remodel a kitchen or bath consult with an NKBA-certified designer.

Associate Kitchen & Bath Designers (AKBDs), Certified Kitchen Designers (CKDs), Certified Bathroom Designers (CBDs), and Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designers (CMKBDs) are experts in design who have been taught the proper methods for eliminating radon and other hazardous gases from the home, as discussed in the NKBA Professional Resource Library volume Kitchen and Bath Systems.

In addition to radon, NKBA-certified designers are familiar with many other health concerns in kitchen and bath remodels that most consumers have never considered. Local AKBDs, CKDs, CBDs, and CMKBDs can be found by using the "Find a Professional" tool located at NKBA.org/Consumers.
