What is Radon?
Radon is a type of radioactive gas, which is created by the natural breakdown of the element radium in the soil. When this process occurs in the soil underneath the home, it creates gas pockets that rise up and into the home. Radon itself is odorless, tasteless, and colorless. There is no way to detect it with just your normal senses. So, what’s the problem then?
Well, radon is a radioactive gas and a carcinogen. It has been linked to lung cancer in quite a few cases, and is even the number–one cause of lung cancer in non–smokers. Deaths from lung cancer due to radon exposure number in the tens of thousands per year in the United States. In other words: this is not something you should take lightly.
