What is Radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally in the environment as a result of the breakdown of uranium in soil, rocks and water.

Ground water can be a carrier for radon, seeping into homes through basements cracks in walls, and floors.

Indoor radon levels fluctuate with the seasons. Generally, radon concentrations are higher in the winter than in the summer, and higher at night than during the day. This is because energy conservation methods, such as the closing of doors and windows at night, prevent proper air exchange and air circulation, allowing radon to build up.

Get your home tested for Radon and protect your family from this gas.
