Radon is a radioactive gas that forms naturally when radioactive metals such as uranium, thorium, or radium, break down in rocks, soil, and groundwater. Humans can be exposed to radon primarily from breathing radon in air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes. Because radon comes naturally from the earth, people can’t smell, taste, or see it as it’s odorless, tasteless, and colorless. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in America, and it comes right after smoking as the leading cause of lung cancer.
High levels of Radon in the house are very dangerous and it can seriously affect you and your family.
Radon is responsible for 15,000 to 20,000 deaths annually in America, so it needs to be taken seriously.
Schedule your Radon test along with your home inspection today to make sure your family is protected. The house indoor air will be sampled for two days, and the sample will be sent to an approved NJ Department of Environmental Protection Lab, which will measure and generate a report indicating the Radon concentration levels in the house.
