What Is Radon?

Radon is an odorless and colorless gas that is produced when uranium, radium, or thorium decays in the soil. These are naturally occurring products that are harmlessly dispersed outside. However, radon can accumulate inside your home or building when the gas seeps through the cracks in your basement or foundation. If it builds up in your space, it can cause long-term damage to your health. It’s impossible to tell how much is present in your home without testing for it. Fortunately, our team is here to help.

What Health Risks Can Radon Pose?

According to both the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the EPA, radon causes lung cancer in smokers and non-smokers alike. When inhaled, it attaches to your lungs, where it undergoes radioactive decay and eventually causes lung cancer by damaging the DNA of your sensitive lung tissue.

Smoking cigarettes is the most common cause of lung cancer in America. In comparison, radon represents a far smaller risk for lung cancer, but it’s still the second leading cause in the United States. Scientists estimate that 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year are related to radon.

How Does Radon Enter Your Home?

The highest level of concentration is normally found on the lowest level of your home. It enters as a gas through cracks in the floor, walls, foundation, hollow block walls, and sump pumps. Basements with no visible signs of cracks or openings also can have radon because radon can move easily through all gas permeable materials.

Is your home a new construction, built on a slab, or a townhouse? Since radon enters your home from the soil beneath it, the age of your home or if you even have a basement is not indicative of whether or not radon will be an issue. You’ll need to have your home’s radon levels measured and tested by a professional.
