Radon is a radioactive odorless and tasteless gas that is emitted during the natural breakdown of uranium in the earth. Radon is released as a gas during this process and can enter the interior of buildings through penetrations in the foundation. It can be found across all regions of the United States and in any type of building.
Why is it Important?
Prolonged exposure to radon can result in certain types of pediatric and adult cancers, including lung cancer. According to the EPA, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers in the United States. Testing for radon provides a non-invasive and inexpensive means of assurance for the safety of your family.
