Radon is a natural gas found in soil that is odorless, colorless, and is hazardous at high levels. This natural gas comes from the uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air we breathe. It can get into the house through the cracks/holes in the foundation. Since radon can’t be detected by sight or smell, many families go years without knowing the dangerous radon levels lurking in their homes. Luckily, there are easy & effective solutions for reducing radon levels.
