Radon Explained

Radon gas occurs naturally, but you probably wouldn’t know it: This substance is silent, invisible and impossible to smell or taste. Unlike other carcinogens, however, it can harm you even if you don’t engage in adverse behaviors like smoking.

How Did Radon Enter My Home?

Radon in a HomeAlthough the atmosphere contains small amounts of radon, it can build up to harmful levels in confined spaces, such as your basement. As the rocks, minerals and other components in soil decay, they often release radon into buildings. After it passes through cracked foundations, masonry joints, cavities, crawl spaces and pipe entry points, this gas accumulates in your basement and other parts of your home until it increases your risk of lung cancer.

In mineral-rich places like Wyoming, radon that seeps from rocks can enter the groundwater. This tendency means that even if your home isn’t right on top of a significant radon pocket, any fluid that leaks into your basement might carry radiation risks with it in addition to causing more common problems, such as mold growth or wood rot.

Fighting Back: Why Testing and Mitigation Are so Important

Radon SymbolRadon isn’t a lone threat. As it emits harmful radiation, it can break down into other dangerous elements that also release radiation. Unlike radon, which is a gas, however, these elements may take solid forms that allow them to stick to dust, the walls of your home or your furniture. From there, they spread potentially deadly carcinogens even further.

It’s not enough to test a single room for radon and call it a day.

In addition to spreading through decay and other means, radon can occur at different levels in different parts of your home. Installing a detector or using a DIY test kit in one spot may leave you vulnerable to hazards that lurk just around the corner.
