Radon is a serious health hazard  - the leading cause of lung cancer among non- smokers.  Over 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year are caused by inhaling radon in homes, schools, and work places.  It's a hidden health threat because radon cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted.

Radon is a cancer-causing, natural, radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. 

According to the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Surgeon General and the EPA, radon's presence in your home  poses a serious danger to your family's health.  It
is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America claiming over 20,000 lives annually. 

Radon is caused by decaying uranium in the soil and rock under a home or building.  It moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation and becomes trapped inside where it can build up.  This means new and older homes, well-sealed or drafty homes, with or without basements.  Any home can have high levels of radon.

Unhealthy levels of radon are frequently found in homes in the Midwest.  Homes in the Kansas City area including Jackson, Platte, and Clay, and Johnson counties are in Zone I, which indicates the most frequency of dangerous levels – about 1 in 3 or 4 homes.  High levels of radon (even 30-50 pCi/L) are frequently found in the KC Metro area.

The EPA and American Cancer Society Recommends:

  •  Have your home tested!  Every home should be tested for radon.
  •  If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested.
  •  For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested.
  •  Fix the home if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher.
  •  Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and may be reduced.
