Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive, odorless gas. It is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the United States each year. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe.
Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. Testing is inexpensive and easy, and can be done with a home test kit or by hiring a professional. In the event you do have high levels of radon in your home, radon reduction systems work and are not too costly.
