Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas produced by the breakdown of uranium in the earth. Radon is tasteless, odorless and colorless so there is no way to detect this deadly gas in your home, unless you test! If your test results indicate your radon level is above the EPA's maximum safe threshold, 4.0 pCi./L, a radon reduction system should be installed. This will ensure your radon exposure is brought to a minimum.
The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.
