Radon is an invisible radioactive gas that occurs naturally in the environment from the breakdown of uranium in soil and rocks. It doesn't present a concern when released outdoors but when radon becomes trapped inside a house, it can be very harmful to your health as it increases the risk of lung cancer.
Radon can seep into your home through gaps in floors, walls and foundations and the only way to know if you have high radon levels is to test for it. You can purchase various inexpensive testing kits or call in a professional. Radon concentrations vary from home to home so don't take any chances -- protect your family by testing your home for radon today.
