What is Radon??      

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil and rock.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas, most homes have some amount of radon present. You can't see, smell, or taste it. Radon can be found everywhere in the world.


 The only way to determine the concentration of
Radon that is present is to test. The acceptable level of Radon in your home, school, or workplace is 4 pCi/l and below. pCi/l stands for picocuries per liter, the most popular method of reporting radon levels in the U.S.


Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking. According to the United States
E.P.A., radon causes more deaths than any other single pollutant, except tobacco in the U.S. An
estimated 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year are caused by Radon.


There are several ways that radon enters the home:

Cracks in floors

Construction joints

Cracks in walls

Gaps in suspended floors

Openings in service pipes

Cavities inside walls

Water supply


 Simple systems using pipes and fans may be used to reduce radon. Such systems are called "sub-slab depressurization," and do not require major renovations to your home. These systems remove radon gas from below the concrete floor before it can enter the home. The right system depends on the design of your home and other factors. The average house costs about $1200.00 for a contractor to fix, although this can range from about $500.00 to about $2500.00.
