What Is Radon?
Radon is an odorless and colorless gas produced by decaying uranium. Although imperceptible, radon is insidious. The radioactive gas is present in essentially all soil, and in great enough concentrations it can cause lung cancer. In fact, radon is second only to smoking as the leading cause of the disease in the United States. Radon can infiltrate the floors and foundation of a home of any age and condition — should it become trapped in your basement, then the risk radon poses to your family’s health is a grave matter.
