What is Radon?
Radon gas is an odorless, colorless, tasteless radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium found in most rocks and soils. The only way to know if a home has a radon problem is to test it.
According to EPA estimates, radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year.
