According to the EPA, nearly one out of every fifteen homes in the United States has an elevated radon level. Radon is an invisible, odorless radioactive gas that is attributed with being the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. The odds indicate that at least one of your neighbors, if not your own home, is at risk. Check out this video that explains how radon can impact your home.
