Radon is a silent intruder that you cannot see or smell but can build up at dangerous levels in your home. Exposure to radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers in America, claiming the lives of over 21,000 people a year. Sadly, nearly all exposure to radon is entirely preventable and if high levels are detected in your home, there are steps which can be taken to protect you and your family.

There is no known safe level of radon in your home, but risks can be reduced if high levels are found. Solutions can be as simple as sealing cracks in your foundation and crawl spaces or as complex as a soil suction radon reduction system. Put testing your home for radon at the top of your to do list and make sure you check it off! It’s easy and test kits are being provided for free.
