Radon Facts:
Radon is a radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It originates in the soil from the natural decay of uranium that exists in or below most soils and enters the home through cracks, around pipes or conduit openings, through sump pumps and drain tiles, between the floor and wall joints in a basement, and even from negative pressure drawing the gas into the home. Iowa has the highest percentage of homes above EPA recommended radon action level (4 pCi/L). For more information on radon and testing visit our radon resource page.
