Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
Radon is an invisible and odorless radioactive gas. Elevated levels of radon have been found in homes all across the country. Any home in any state may have a radon problem: new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.
The EPA recommends that all homes should test for radon, regardless of geographic location. According to the EPA, one out of 15 U.S. homes has radon levels above the recommended guideline of 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L). … It’s impossible to know if your home or office is contaminated unless you have a radon test. How often? Most experts suggest every two years or more often if you are doing any major work on your home.
