Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that’s produced by the natural decay of radium. It is colorless, odorless and tasteless, and it can only be detected by laboratory tests.
The gas enters your house through pores and cracks in the concrete or through the floorboards of poorly ventilated crawl spaces.

- How harmful is radon?
There is no safe level of radon. Any exposure poses some risk of cancer. In two 1999 reports, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) concluded that indoor air contaminated with radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States after cigarette smoking. The NAS estimated that 15,000-22,000 Americans die every year from radon-related lung cancer.
- How do I know if there’s radon in my home?
You cannot see, feel, smell or taste radon. Testing your home is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk. The Environmental Protection Agency and Surgeon General recommend testing for radon in all rooms below the third floor.
- What can I do to protect myself and my family from radon?
The first step is to test your home for radon and have it mitigated if it is at or above the EPA’s Action Level. The best method for reducing radon in your home will depend on how radon enters your home and the design of your home.
