Radon, a Class A carcinogen, is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking.

Radon comes from the radioactive breakdown of naturally occurring radium found in most Florida soils.

As a gas in the soil, it enters buildings through small openings in the foundation. Since the building can hold the radon similarly to smoke trapped under a glass, indoor radon concentrations can increase to many times that of outdoor levels.

What Is Radon?

  • Odorless, Tasteless, Invisible Gas
  • Radioactive breakdown product of naturally occurring radium in soils
  • Can enter buildings through small openings in the foundation
  • Slab on grade construction is more prone to excessive radon levels
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that, when it has accumulated in a building in sufficient quantities, may present health risks to persons who are exposed to it over time. Levels of radon that exceed federal and state guidelines have been found in buildings in Florida. See Frequent Questions concerning Radon on the US EPA's website.


 
Radon - An Invisible Threat

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Radon is odorless, colorless and tasteless. It is a naturally occurring radioactive gas resulting from the decay of radium. Radon in turn breaks down into radon decay products and these decay products, either free or attached to airborne particles, are inhaled where they further decay in the lungs.

It is the emission of high-energy alpha particles during the radon decay process that increases the risk of lung cancer. When radon decay products are inhaled and deposited in the lungs, the alpha emissions penetrate the cells of the epithelium lining the lungs
