Radon is an Invisible and ODORLESS RADIOACTIVE GAS, which occurs naturally from decaying uranium underneath the earth’s surface. Though you cannot see, smell, or taste Radon, it is there and may be a problem in your home or office. When trapped inside an enclosed space, it can reach dangerous and often deadly levels. Continuous inhalation of Radon Gas damages lung tissue causing lung cancer and long-term exposure may even cause death.
High Levels Of Radon Can Put Your Family At Risk
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Estimates that Radon kills as many as 30,000 people each year. Nearly 1 in 15 homes is estimated to have elevated levels of Radon. Radon Gas is the #1 cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers.
Radon can show up in any home or office. You may have Radon in your home or office even if your neighbor does not.
Cigarette smokers who have Radon concentration of 10pCi/L or higher increase their chance of developing lung cancer by as much as 18 times or 1800%.
Common Radon Entry Points…

How Radon Gets Into Homes And Offices
The greatest concentration of Radon is usually found in the lowest level of the homes or offices. This is because Radon is found in the soil and rock beneath the foundation. If you have dirt floors in the basement, cracks in the foundation, or openings from the sump pump hole or drain, Radon is likely to build up quicker and in higher concentrations.
