Radon is a naturally-occurring soil gas that can come through cracks and gaps in a home’s foundation and fill the air, posing serious health risks. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon gas is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Those who smoke and are exposed to radon are at an even greater risk of developing lung cancer. The gas is invisible and odorless, so testing for radon is the only way to know the radon levels in your home. Any Connecticut home or building can have a radon problem. Two buildings next to each other, built in the same style, can have different radon levels. Even if your neighbors don't have a radon problem, you should test your home for radon.

If you're planning any major renovations, testing for radon before you begin the work is important. This is especially true if you're finishing or remodeling the basement, where radon levels are typically higher than other areas in the home. If your test results indicate high radon levels, installation of a radon mitigation system can be included as part of the renovation.
