What Is Radon?

Radon is an invisible and odorless radioactive gas caused by the decay of uranium and radium deposits in soil, rocks, and water. It enters homes through cracks in the concrete slab and foundation. As it accumulates over time, it poses a hazardous health risk to those living in or near high levels of radon.

Protection. Passion. Purpose.


Why Does My Home Need a Radon Detection Test?

Contrary to popular belief, radon is a very real problem in Arizona. The EPA has identified radon as a risk factor for developing lung cancer. Along with this alarming fact, there are several other advantages to scheduling a radon test for your home:

  • A low presence of radon in your home is equivalent to smoking 2 ½ cigarettes a day.
  • Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer, second only to smoking.
  • The average Phoenix home has a 1 in 10 chance of having dangerously high levels of radon.

Common Myths Surrounding Radon Testing & Mitigation

  • Radon is not a problem in Arizona. More than 10% of homes in Arizona are estimated to have a hazardous radon problem.
  • Radon only occurs in basement homes. Any kind of home can have a radon problem as this element seeps directly from the ground.
  • It’s too expensive to conduct a radon test. Radon tests are typically inexpensive, depending on the method and professional company conducting the test.
  • Radon only happens in or near the mountains. While there are some specific areas of higher elevation with higher radon readings, radon problems are not limited to mountain regions and can occur anywhere in our area.
