Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. It can get into your home through cracks in the foundation and water sources. It occurs when Uranium metal, found underground, decomposes and releases radon gas.
The bad news? Radon is a Class A Human Carcinogen. Breathing air with high concentrations of it, especially in your home, is dangerous. In fact, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. More than 21,000 people die each year from radon-induced lung cancer. That means that, in the United States, someone dies from the effects of radon every 25 minutes. Up to 15% of all lung cancer cases are attributed to radon exposure.
Any home or building is at risk of having concentrations of radon, and the only way to know for sure is to test for it. The EPA recommends mitigating (diminishing the amount of radon) if your home tests at a level of 4 piC/L (picocuries per liter) or higher. The process of testing for radon is an inexpensive and straightforward process, but it is important that whoever is conducting the test is qualified to do so for the integrity and accuracy of test results.
