Your Health & Safety
Radon exists in outdoor and indoor air of buildings of all kinds. Because of its unique properties, you cannot see, smell it or taste it. However, it can pose significant risks to your home. According to the EPA, Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year and radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today (A Citizen's Guide to Radon: The Guide to Protecting Yourself and Your Family From Radon"). What’s more important to Alabama residents, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health, North Alabama (see red on the map)is at the highest risk level for Radon gas.
