Arising from uranium decay, radon is an invisible, tasteless, and odorless radioactive gas. When freely dispersed, it poses no immediate threat. Yet, if it seeps into enclosed spaces like your home, it may accumulate, posing a substantial health risk.

- Cracks found in foundation walls and floor slabs
- Construction joints
- Support posts
- Floor drains
- Sumps or wall cavities

Radon Gas FAQs
What is radon gas and how does it get into my home?
fissures and veins carrying radon gasses open and close. When those gasses release from the

become concentrated and dangerous.
