What Is Radon

Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that comes from decomposing radium/uranium in the earth. Since it is radioactive, it causes cancer. Radon is everywhere, but when it is in our home at unsafe levels, it can be devastating.

Radon FAQ

What's So Bad About Radon?

Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, behind smoking. Radon is invisible, odorless, and tasteless — making it impossible to detect without specialized equipment. Approximately 18,000 lung cancer deaths related to radon occur in the United States every year, and it’s estimated that 1 in 15 homes has radon levels above the thresholds recommended by the EPA.

What Can You Do About Radon?

The first step to protect yourself and your family is to check the concentration of radon in the home. We provide radon tests using specialized equipment to give you an accurate measurement of radon concentration levels. If the radon measurement is greater than 4 picocuries per liter, then it is recommended that you install a radon mitigation system. The most common radon mitigation systems use a fan to pull in radon from beneath the house, and vent it outdoors where it is quickly diluted to safe levels.
