Radon Gas - and Why You Should Test

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Radon typically moves up through the ground and can enter structures through cracks or other holes in the building’s foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water. Unfortunately, once radon gets into a structure, it can become trapped inside, thus exposing the occupants to the negative effects of this odorless, colorless gas.
