Radon is a colorless, odorless gas emitted into the air by the radioactive element, radium, as it breaks down in soil, rock, and water. Typically, radon penetrates buildings through small cracks or openings in foundations undetected. And, once radon has entered a property, the radon may be trapped inside. Since testing is the only way to determine a home’s radon level, the EPA and Surgeon General recommend that home buyers, sellers, and remodelers test all homes in the lowest living area. This could be an unfinished basement that could be made into a living area. If consumers discover elevated radon levels of four picocuries per liter (4 pCi/L) or higher—which the EPA estimates that nearly one in every 15 households do—then the EPA urges them to take corrective measures, including the installation of a radon mitigation system. The radon test equipment must be left in a home for no less than 44 hours.
