Radon is a colorless and odorless radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium found in nearly all soils.  Radon gas can escape from the ground and enter into your home through cracks and other holes found in the foundation.  Once inside the radon becomes trapped within the home, where the concentration can build up to dangerous levels. 

When exposed to radon the gas enters the person’s lungs during normal breathing activities.  Exposure to radon has been linked to lung cancer and has been identified as the second leading cause of lung cancer by the Surgeons General. 

All homes are at risk for increased radon levels including new and old construction and homes with or without basements.  The only way to determine if radon is present in your home is to have radon sampling performed.
