Radon is an odorless, tasteless and colorless gas and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Nationally, the EPA estimates that about 21,000 people die each year from radon-related lung cancer. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. Radon is produced by the decay of uranium in the soil and is more concentrated indoors where it takes longer to break down. Radon mitigation is the process of reducing radon levels in occupiable spaces or from water through specialized equipment that is installed in the home.
