Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is found naturally all over the world. Radon is formed by the breakdown of radioactive material, such as uranium, in soils across the globe. Radon is quite dangerous- it's the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and can build up within buildings quite easily, unbeknownst to the occupants within. Radon will infiltrate through cracks in the floors or walls, through floor drains and sump openings, and even through the holes made for pipes and utility lines.
