What is Radon?
Radon gas is a naturally-occurring byproduct of the radioactive decay of Uranium in the soil. Levels of radon in the air vary between geographic regions but could be as high as .75 pCi/L. Radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer among individuals who don’t smoke, and thus any level of radon in homes and in the air can be extremely harmful.
Radon can enter your home in a variety of ways and affects 1 in 15 homes in the United States. Here are some ways that radon might be entering your home:
- Flooring Gaps
