Protect Your Family from Radon
Because you cannot see, smell, or taste radon, radon testing is the only way to know if the toxic gas is present in your home. Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas resulting from the natural decay of uranium in soil, rock and water; this toxic gas enters the home from below. The EPA urges every homeowner to test for radon when buying or selling a home.
