You cannot see, smell, or taste radon, but it still may be a problem in your home.
- When you breathe air containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General of the United State has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
- I do a short-term radon test which is placed in the home for 48 hours. You will receive a report indicating the levels that were present at the time of the test.
