What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that results from the decay of Uranium found in soil and bedrock.
Radon health hazards:
Radon is considered second only to smoking as the leading cause of lung cancer. The EPA estimates that as many as 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States are associated with the exposure to radon.
How does radon get into the home?
The illustration to the right outlines the most common entry points into the home. Radon can seep in from exposed dirt such as crawl spaces, plumbing cut-outs or cracks in the floors and foundation. The highest levels of radon are typically found in the lowest livable areas of the home, such as the basement or other rooms in direct contact with the ground.
