What Is Radon?

Radon is element # 86 on the periodic chart of elements. It is a colorless, tasteless, and odorless gas with a radioactive half-life of only 3.82 days. Radon is created when radium, element #88, breaks down through radioactive decay. Radium's half-life is 1622 years. The amount of radon in your home will be determined by the amount of radium present in the soil that surrounds your house. It also depends on the ease of entry and amount of negative pressure within the home.

Radon is radiation. There are no safe levels of radiation, so the higher your radon level, the greater your risk. Health experts recommend that you try to minimize your exposure to all forms of radiation including x-rays, nuclear radiation and solar radiation, but especially radon because of its ability to mutate cells within the human body.

"I want to compliment you on your business culture and professionalism while at our home. As you know I am a local developer and builder. You as well as your entire staff during each and every phase amazed me with your preparation, direction, timeliness and most importantly to my wife and I your cleanliness. I have spent years and years trying to adjust to the stereotypical idea that homeowners have contracts, which you may well know in many cases is not good. It was refreshing to work with you and your company who’s philosophy is obviously to deliver a high caliber experience to your client. Job very well done." - Ray and Dianne D.
