Radon and Your Health
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that seeps through the earth’s surface. It can seep into your home and pose a danger to your family’s health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America.
You can not see, taste or smell radon. The only way to know if your home has a radon concentration is to test for radon.
If testing shows that your home has a radon concentration, you can install a radon reduction system. These systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. We can provide information to you about reduction systems and certified contractors.
