What Every Buyer Needs to Know About Radon
Radon is a gaseous element that results from the disintegration of minerals in the ground. It occurs naturally, but can be more intense in different areas, even in neighborhoods, or house to house. It is radioactive, and is odorless, colorless and tasteless.
Radon comes into a home through a basement or foundation, seeping through floor joists, or cracks in the floor, cracks in the walls, and gaps around service pipes.
