Radon gas is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally in the environment, produced by the decay of uranium and thorium in soil. It is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, entering buildings through cracks in structure foundations or walls. Radon is known to cause lung cancer, and exposure to high levels of radon gas over a prolonged period can significantly increase the risk of developing this disease. According to the World Health Organization, radon is responsible for an estimated 15% of lung cancer deaths worldwide.
The process of testing for radon involves measuring the levels of radon gas in a particular area using specialized equipment. For residential structures, this typically involves placing a small device in the lowest level of the home, where radon gas is most likely to accumulate. For commercial structures, the process may be more complex, depending on the size and layout of the building.
State and federal regulations have been put in place to protect people from the dangers of radon exposure. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established guidelines for acceptable levels of radon in homes and buildings. In addition, many states have enacted laws requiring radon testing and mitigation in certain circumstances.
