THE SOURCE OF RADON
Where is radon coming from?
In a scientific nutshell, radon is a gas that is produced by the natural decay of uranium that breaks down to radium. Radium then turns into the radioactive gas called radon.
Basically, radon exists in the ground naturally. Radon becomes a concern when it starts to enter into our homes and affecting our family's health.
YOUR HOME AND RADON
Radon steadily permeates into homes while your family goes about their daily activity. Radon easily finds its way through the floors and below grade walls and through openings in the home such as sump pits and around utilities. Radon can even come through concrete floors.
If your home doesn't have a radon mitigation system to take care of radon gases, your home isn't a protected home.
