What Is Radon?

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas. It’s a byproduct of uranium decay, and all soils and rocks contain different concentrations of uranium.   Top Posts Of 2020Play Video

There’s a lot of it in Nebraska and Iowa. On average, the radon level in Nebraska is 6.0 pCi/L and 8.5 pCi/L in Iowa.

As uranium breaks down over time, it releases toxic byproducts that seep up and out of the soil and into the air. You can’t smell it and you can’t see it, but it’s linked to lung cancer.

If high levels are detected in your home, you will need to have a Radon Mitigation System installed in your home.

This is part of the Radon Mitigation System inside our home. It was installed before we purchased it and I confess to not knowing how to check the gauge to make sure it was still working.
