Radon Testing

Home Inspector in Fort Washington, Maryland


What is Radon?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that can pose a health risk, including cancer, to those who are exposed to it. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is the leading cause of cancer among non-smokers and the second most common cause of lung cancer in the United States.

How Radon Gas Gets Into a House?

Radon gas is produced as natural uranium in the soil decays. It is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that generally moves through the ground to the air above and into homes via cracks or holes in the foundation. Once radon gas is in the house, the structure holds the gas inside, where it can build up. It doesn’t matter whether your home is new or old, energy-efficient or drafty; radon can get in and build up. While radon gas can enter a home through well water, it generally enters houses through the soil.
