Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas and the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers when it is concentrated indoors. Certain regions tend to have higher readings than others because of the amount of uranium decomposing in the soil there. All homes should be checked for radon, because all homes have slightly different soils underneath and construction types.
If radon measurements are at 4pC/L or above, contact a certified radon mitigation professional to fix your home.
