Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is formed from the natural decay of uranium. It is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas and can be found in soil, water, and air. Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and is responsible for about 21,000 deaths each year in the United States.
Radon gas is a health risk because it can accumulate in high concentrations in buildings. The gas can enter homes through cracks in the foundation, openings around pipes and drains, and other openings in the home. It can also be released from building materials, such as concrete, bricks, and granite.
There are several steps that homeowners can take to reduce their exposure to radon gas. These include testing their home for radon gas, fixing any cracks or leaks in the home, and installing a radon mitigation system.
Radon inspection and mitigation is an important part of protecting your family from the health risks associated with radon gas. If you are concerned about the levels of radon in your home, contact a qualified radon inspector to have your home tested.
