Invisible. Odorless. Dangerous.
Radon is responsible for thousands of preventable deaths per year. You can’t taste it, smell it, or see this harmful radioactive gas, but it’s the result of naturally decaying uranium often found in building materials, soil, and water. Radon finds its way into the home from cracks in foundation and walls, gaps around service pipes, and from the water supply. It can leak into the air you breathe, and the water you drink, which is why it’s critical that if you suspect radon in your home, you schedule a test.
According to the EPA, nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have elevated radon levels, and some local counties require tests before a home can be sold. Radon is especially prevalent in older homes, as they’re not built with radon-resistant features in mind. Exposure to radon overtime is especially dangerous, as it greatly raises your risk of lung cancer. If the afflicted is already vulnerable due to a history of smoking, it can lead to a deadly combination.
