What is Radon?
- Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water.
- The release of this radioactive gas enters the air you breathe, causing a potential health risk to you and your family.
Radon is a radioactive gas that typically moves up through the topsoil to the air above, seeping into your home through cracks and or holes in the foundation.
- Any home can have a radon problem, old or new, slab on grade or basement homes.
What you should know about Radon.
Radon is a cancer causing radioactive gas. You cannot see radon and you cannot smell it or taste it, but it may be a problem in your home. This is because when you breathe air-containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer.
