Radon is a colorless, tasteless and odorless gas that can cause lung cancer. It occurs natually when uranium breaks down to radium which in turn breaks down to form radon. Radon is released into the soil and easily enters your home through the foundation and well water. It can build up to dangerous levels inside houses, schools, and other buildings. The only way to know if you have radon is to test!
