Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs when uranium in soil and rock breaks down. You can’t see it, smell it, or taste it. In enclosed spaces, such as a home, it can accumulate to dangerous levels.  The only way to know if your home has a radon problem is to test. To learn more about radon, how to test for and mitigate a radon problem in your home visit: RadonAware.ca.
