What is radon?
-Radon is a odorless and colorless gas that may be present in your home. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second highest cause of lung cancer in the United States outside of smoking. The gas is produced by the natural breakdown of uranium in environmental elements such as soil, rock, and water. When radon becomes a gas, it mixes with the air that you breathe. As radon gets into homes, offices, and other buildings, it can build up. As you spend the majority of your time in your house, that is often where the greatest exposure can occur.
Can I test for radon in my home?
