What is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, tasteless, odorless gas caused by the decay of radium that naturally occurs in the soil. Radon is found in all homes, and is harmless in small doses. But high levels of radon, or prolonged exposure to low levels of radon, can lead to lung cancer. According to the EPA, radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer, second only to cigarettes. Radon enters your home through small cracks in the foundation and gathers in attics, crawlspaces, basements, and other areas.
