What is Radon? A severe health hazard, with a simple solution.
U.S. SURGEON GENERAL HEALTH ADVISORY “Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.” January 2005

  • Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas, formed from the natural decay of uranium found in soil and rock, that can be found at dangerous levels in more than ⅓ of the homes in Ada county. Radon is the #1 leading cause of lung cancer after cigarettes. (It kills more people each year than traffic accidents.) Radon gas in the soil and rock can move into the air and into groundwater, as well as into our homes through small cracks in floors or walls, construction joints, or gaps in foundations around pipes, wires, or pumps. This radioactive gas could potentially expose your family to a higher risk of lung cancer.
