WHAT IS RADON?
Radon is an odorless, colorless, radioactive gas. Radon has been found in homes all over the world. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium found in the soil and moves up through tiny cracks and holes in the foundation of a home.
Any home can have radon. You can only find the radon level in your by testing. Numerous studies have shown that continued exposure to elevated levels of radon gas increases the chance of developing lung cancer.
The Environmental Protection Agency and the American Lung Association agree that long term exposure to elevated levels of radon gas is a significant health risk.
WHAT IF THERE IS RADON IN MY HOME?
The EPA has set a national action level of 4 pCi/L (picoCuries of radon per liter of air) and has no plans to change this action level.
If your home has a confirmed radon level of 4 pCi/L or above in a living area, consider having that radon level reduced by installing a radon mitigation system. It is recommended that a licensed radon mitigation contractor install the system.
