Radon Testing

What is Radon?

Radon Is a Cancer‑Causing, Radioactive Gas. You cannot see, smell, or taste radon. But it still may be a problem in your home. When you breathe air containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General of the United States has warned that radon is the second
leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke and your home has radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

Why Should I Test for Radon?

  • Radon Has Been Found in Homes All Over the United States.
  • 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 can also enter your
    home through well water.
  • Your home can trap radon inside.
  • Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.
  • Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is
    estimated to have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more).
  • Elevated levels of radon gas have been found in homes in your state. Contact your state radon office for information about radon in your area.
