What is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally from the decay of uranium that is found in the soil beneath the home. This Radon gas enters the home thru the crawl space, cracks in the foundation and floor, sump pump pits, water and some building materials. Radon gas in the home, however cannot be detected by living in the home alone, as it is colorless, odorless, and cannot be tasted. It is a known carcinogen and left undetected and unmitigated for long periods of time can lead to lung cancer. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that a home found with high Radon levels, above 4 pCi/L, have mitigation performed.
