What is Radon? Radon is a naturally occurring, cancer-causing, radioactive gas that results from the decay of Uranium found in the soil. It is invisible, odorless and the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Naturally occurring moisture and gases build-up in your crawlspace and under the basement slab. Unless properly ventilated, this moisture, Radon, and other harmful soil gases enter your home’s living area through the basement affecting your family’s health.
Facts about Radon:
• Every 1 pCi/l of Radon exposure is equivalent to smoking 2.5 cigarettes per day.
• Every 25 minutes someone in the US dies from Radon-induced lung cancer
• Lung Cancer kills more Americans than breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer combined.
• Test your home for radon – it’s easy and inexpensive.
• Fix your home if your radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher.
