What is radon?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that occurs when uranium breaks down in the soil. This gas can seep into your home through cracks in the foundation, where it becomes trapped. When radon becomes too highly concentrated in an area, then it can become deadly; it is one of the leading causes of lung cancer, and, as such, it’s important to make sure there isn’t too much of it in your building.
