A chemically inert, radioactive gas produced by the decay of radium. Radon emissions are a health hazard produced by outgassing of rock, brick, etc.
Radon gas comes from a breakdown of uranium inside the earth. It is invisible, odorless and tasteless with no immediate health symptoms.
Radon gas can seep into a home from the soil through dirt, crawl spaces, cracks in the foundation and walls, floor drains, pipes and sump pumps. It can enter any virtually home, old or new, even those with no visible cracks!
The only way to know what the radon levels are inside your home or other location is to measure them. This simple test kit can reveal the amount of radon gas in your home, office or any building and is used for the initial screening for radon gas. This test kit can also be used to assess the performance of a Radon Mitigation system.
Radon exposure is highly dangerous to your health and is the cause of over 20,000 lung cancer deaths every year. Nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have elevated radon levels.
You may not recognize any symptoms but persistent lung issues resulting from radon exposure could include:
- Persistent cough
