What Is Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring gas which is part of the air that we all breathe every day. Radon is present in all homes, in every state in the U.S. Radon is a significant contaminant that impacts indoor air quality worldwide. While a small amount of the gas is harmless, Radon can rise to unsafe levels in homes and workplaces. Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in buildings, and drinking water, and cause lung cancer. Every year, Radon has the potential to cause 20,000 deaths in the United States. Because we cannot see, smell, or taste Radon, the only way to determine if such a situation exists in a home is to test for it.
