Radon Testing

Radon Testing

Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the US.

No matter where you are in America, your home may be exposed to dangerous radon gas. Radon is a natural, radioactive, invisible, and odorless gas that is produced when uranium in the Earth’s crust decays and turns into radium. Radon is also the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.

Outdoors, radon will naturally dissipate harmlessly into the atmosphere as it rises through the crust. But in homes, it can become trapped, which is dangerous for the health of you and your family. Radon is colorless and odorless, and it is extremely carcinogenic. According to the EPA, radon is one of the leading contributors to the development of lung cancer, behind only smoking. For this reason, regular radon testing is key whether you’re a homeowner, or you’re interested in purchasing a home.

Elevated levels of radon affect 1 in 3 Kansas homes, posing a silent threat to residents’ health. This alarming statistic, revealed in the AARST Radon Report Card, highlights the state’s significant radon risk. If you’re a homeowner in Kansas, don’t underestimate this invisible danger.
