How Does Radon Enter a Home

 

Radon forms naturally when uranium located in soil, rocks, and water breaks down. It’s a radioactive gas that enters the air after it has broken down, and while it doesn’t pose a real threat outdoors, it can be problematic when it seeps into a home. So how does radon enter a home? It can get through cracks located in a floor, through cavities inside of walls, and through construction joints. If your home isn’t completely sealed from the ground below, radon can often find a way inside. If radon is detected in your home, a system can be installed in order to remove it before you’re exposed.
