Frequently Asked Questions
Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that seeps up from the earth. When inhaled, it gives off radioactive particles that can cause lung cancer. According to EPA studies radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non smokers.
The soil. Radon is produced from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. Uranium breaks down to radium. As radium disintegrates it turns into radon. As a gas, radon moves up through the soil and into the air you breathe.
While radon is present everywhere, and there is no known safe level, your greatest exposure is where it can concentrate indoors. And where you spend most time at home. Your home can have radon whether it be old or new and with or without a basement.
The goal of a radon mitigation system is to reduce the indoor radon levels to below the EPA action level of 4 pCi/L. A quality radon reduction (mitigation) system is often able to reduce the annual average radon level to below 2 pCi/L.
