Expert Radon Testing in Canandaigua, NY
Radon, a radioactive gas, lacks odor, color, and flavor. Its natural origin lies in the breakdown of uranium in the ground. When not confined, radon disperses harmlessly, posing no threat. Conversely, if it infiltrates enclosed spaces, such as your home, it accumulates, evolving into a significant health risk.
There are many entry points radon gas can take to get inside your home. The most common entryways include:
- Cracks found in foundation walls and floor slabs
- Construction joints
- Support posts
- Floor drains
- Sumps or wall cavities
- Dirt floors
- Window casements
- Gaps around service pipes
- Radon can also make its way through solid concrete floors and walls over time

become concentrated and dangerous.
