Q

How does radon get into my home?

A

Radon moves from uranium-bearing granite deposits in the soil to the atmosphere. Your home sits on radon's pathway from the soil to the atmosphere. Since your home is usually warmer and has lower air pressure than the surrounding soil, gases in the soil, including radon, move into your home.


The most common routes are: 1) spaces between basement walls and the slab 2) cracks in foundations and/or walls. 3) openings around sump pumps and drains 4) construction joints and plumbing penetrations 5) crawl spaces and 6) well water with high radon concentrations.
