The radioactive element radon is a cancer-causing gas that is unable to detect with the human senses. Radon is especially dangerous when high levels are located within a closed space, such as a home. It is only in these situations where radon concentrations can build up to high enough levels to become a serious lung cancer risk to your health.

Radon gas is a byproduct that is released into the atmosphere from the decaying process of uranium-rich soil and rocks.
Radon sources are everywhere and can be located all throughout the U.S. Radon sources are found directly in the earth, as well as in well water with most danger coming from enclosed spaces such as basements and crawl spaces.

Radon exposure is the #2 cause of lung cancer in the United States -- second only to smoking. To date, estimates show that 15,000-22,000 lung cancer deaths occur in the USA annually. Smokers face an incredible health risk with both tobacco and radon-related lung-cancer exposure.
Symptoms of radon poisoning only show up with the onset of lung cancer including a persistent cough, coughing up of blood, difficulty breathing, chest pains, hoarseness, and recurring respiratory infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis. That's why it's important to test your home for dangerous levels of radon and also your mitigation systems to make sure you're living safely and healthy.
Despite the danger that radon presents, many homeowners have not yet had their home tested for radon. Checking radon levels is easy and affordable, and should be done in every home.
