Radon is a gas that occurs naturally in the soil. High levels can build up in homes and buildings. You cannot see, smell or taste radon gas. Radon in indoor air causes more than 20,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year. Data collected by the Florida Department of Health from state-certified professionals indicates that 1 in 5 Florida residences have elevated radon levels. The only way to know the radon levels in your home is to have it tested. Test your home for elevated radon levels and take action to reduce high levels.
