What is Radon?

Radon testing for the silent killer in your home Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium found in nearly all soils. Radon typically moves up through the topsoil to the air above, seeping into your home through cracks and other holes in your foundation. Your home traps radon inside, where it builds up over time. Any home can have a radon problem – old and new, with or without a basement.


Potential Health Risks of Radon

You can’t see radon. You can’t smell it or taste it. But it could be a problem in your home. Radon moves out of the ground and dilutes to harmless levels in the atmosphere, but can accumulate to high levels in homes. Recent studies have found direct evidence linking radon to lung cancer. In fact, radon is estimated to cause thousands of deaths every year. When you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. So if you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is particularly high.
