Short Description:
Radon, a colorless, odorless gas, is found anywhere there is decaying uranium with an escape route to the atmosphere. Radon can enter a home through imperfections in the floors and walls when there is contact with the soil. Breathed into the lungs, radon can cause cell damage that may lead to lung cancer. Fortunately, testing for the presence of radon is easy and inexpensive. This publication describes the different types of test kits and explains what to do if radon is detected in your home.
