Radon is a potentially fatal gas that is impossible to detect without the use of professional, specialized equipment. Radon is clear, odorless and tasteless, which means you could have radon and never even know it. The gas is formed through the natural decay of certain substances like radium, thorium or uranium in the soil. As these substances slowly turn into lead, they give off highly toxic radon, which can leech into homes through basements or cellars.

As a radioactive element, radon causes cancer through extended exposure. In fact, it is the second-leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Because of the high toxicity of this element and the fact that is impossible to detect without professional equipment, it is considered highly dangerous and the surgeon general recommends that all homes be tested. Radon gas can cause serious harm to you and your family and, often, families that do not test their homes for radon do not know about the dangers until it is too late.
