What is radon and how does Radon Testing Madison Wi work?
Radon is simply an invincible, odorless and colorless gas that occurs naturally in the soil from the breakdown of uranium in the soils or rocks. This gas carries high radioactivity and is considered deadly when the levels exceed 4.0pCi/L according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
This gas often enters homes through cracks and holes in the walls and more frequently, your basement. With the power to accumulate overtime, radon concentrates in a home to dangerous levels leaving the inhabitants at risk of severe health issues like cancer. This is why radon testing in Madison is a necessity!
