Most people don't know where radon gas comes from or what effect it has on people's health. Radon is a bi-product of uranium and enters a home through cracks in the foundation or unsealed openings. Radon is odorless and cannot be seen. It is only detectable by sophisticated test equipment.
Radon is believed, by the scientific community, to cause lung cancer. The higher the levels, the higher the risk. The good news is there is remediation. There are several ways to reduce or eliminate radon from your home.
If you suspect you may be at risk, get a radon test done as soon as possible.
