Radon Testing and Inspection in Denver, CO
What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas produced from the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water –– entering the air you breathe.
It can get into any type of building –– homes, offices, and schools.
You and your family are most likely to be exposed in your home, where you spend most of your time.
Radon seeps into your home through cracks in the foundation, walls, and joints.
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the United States. The EPA estimates 21,000 people die each year from lung cancer due to radon exposure.
Most disturbing is that radon-related lung cancer can be prevented.
