Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the United States and claims roughly 20,000 lives annually – it is the number one risk in our homes. It is an odorless, cancer-causing, radioactive natural gas that is emitted from the ground and enters a home through cracks in walls, basement floors, foundations and other openings. Since radon comes from rock and soil, it can naturally be found anywhere.
As Uranium in the soil around your home breaks down, it turns into radium, which in turn breaks down to form radon gas. As the radon gas decays, it releases radioactive byproducts that are inhaled into the lungs and may cause lung cancer.
Limited exposure to radon concentrations outdoors is virtually unavoidable. However, when radon gets trapped indoors, it may build up to dangerous levels inside your home.
