Radon Data Test Results ≥4 pCi/L
Radon is a radioactive gas that forms naturally from the decay of radioactive elements in the soil, rock, and groundwater. It is colorless and odorless. Radon can seep through gaps and cracks in a foundation and accumulate inside homes and buildings. Breathing elevated concentrations of radon over time can increase the risk of developing lung cancer. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates radon causes 21,000 deaths per year and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, after smoking.
