Most people have heard of radon yet do not fully understand what it is and why it is a threat to human health. Radon is a gas that cannot be seen nor does it have an odor. You could be breathing in radon in your home right now and not know it. Radon is a direct threat to your health; it causes lung cancer. Radon is the second most common cause of lung cancer in the United States. Only smoking causes more lung cancer than radon.

How Does Radon Get Into a Home?
Radon develops within a home when the uranium within the soil around the property gradually breaks down over time. This tasteless, odorless and completely transparent gas will move into your house through the basement and eventually segue to your living room, bedroom and other rooms.
The sad truth is radon is often discovered after a lung cancer diagnosis. It is better to be proactive rather than reactive by scheduling a radon test.
