How Radon Enters Your Home

How Radon Enters Your Home


Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water.  Air pressure inside your home is usually lower than pressure in the soil around your home’s foundation.  Because of this difference in pressure, your house acts like a vacuum, dragging radon in through foundation cracks and other openings.  Radon may also be present in well water and small amounts can be released into the air in your home when water is used for showering and household uses.


Radon Reduction Techniques Work


Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%.  The cost of fixing a home generally ranges from $1200.00 and up, depending on the size of fan that is required, the amount of piping required and soil conditions around your home.
