What Is Radon?

What is Radon?

Radon is an odorless and invisible radioactive gas naturally released from rocks, soil, and water. In outdoor environments, radon levels are very low and not considered harmful. However, when radon gets into homes or buildings, it can build up to harmful levels. Breathing in high radon levels can cause lung cancer. Radon can also be found in water. Showering, washing dishes, or doing laundry can release radon gas into the air. The good news is that radon exposure in your home is preventable by testing your home for radon and installing a radon mitigation system to reduce high radon levels.

Radon in Connecticut homes

Radon can build up in the air in any home or building. Whether the home has a basement, is sealed or drafty, or is new or old, radon can be a problem, and testing is the only way to detect high radon levels. There is no safe radon level. The EPA advises installing a radon mitigation system in your home if radon levels are above 4 picoCuries per liter of air (pCi/L).
