What Is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas caused by uranium and granite decay in the soil. Where a home is positioned on the soil can affect whether radon will be an issue inside the home. Radon enters a home in multiple ways, including cracks or openings in the foundation. By design, homes are built to keep utility costs low and to retain heat; however, this also creates an environment in which radon gas infiltrating the home becomes trapped and can accumulate to unsafe levels for the inhabitants.
