Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United
States. It comes from the natural breakdown of Uranium in soil, rock and
water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the
ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in
the foundation. Indoor radon gas is the second leading cause of lung
cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can
present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s
important to know that this threat is completely preventable.

Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established
venting techniques.

Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well sealed
and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you
and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at
home. That is where you spend most of your time. Nearly 1 out of every 15
homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4pCi/L
or more). Elevated levels of radon gas have been found in roughly 1 of
every 4 homes tested in Oconee and Greenville Counties.
You cannot
predict radon levels based on state, local, and neighborhood radon
measurements. Do not rely on radon test results taken in other homes in the
neighborhood to estimate the radon level in you home. Homes which are nest
to each other can have different radon levels.

Testing is the only way to find out what your home’s radon level is.
