Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that is produced by decaying
uranium in the soils and rocks under homes. The gas seeps into the structure
through cracks in concrete slabs & foundations and/or through exposed earthen
floors in crawlspaces.
Radon is found throughout the United States.
Radon levels can vary widely throughout regions, neighborhoods and even
from houses side by side.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer with approximately 20,000 lung cancer deaths per year.
It is the LEADING cause of lung cancer deaths in non-smokers.
The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that homes with levels of radon above 4 piCu/l of air be mitigated.
