Radon is an odorless, tasteless, invisible, and radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium. It’s usually found in igneous rock and soil, but in some cases, well water may also be a source of radon. Radon seeps into buildings through cracks and crevices in all types of foundations. Radon entering buildings can build up to high levels, and prolonged exposure to radon is known to cause lung cancer. According to the EPA, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer next to smoking. Roughly 22,000 U.S. deaths per year are attributed to radon exposure. So, it’s important to test for radon to remediate the problem, if necessary, to protect your family.
Testing is the only way to know a building’s radon levels and levels can vary widely from one building to the next even on the same street.
