Radon is an invisible, odorless gas that can seep into your home through cracks in floors, walls, and foundations. You can’t see radon. You can’t smell it or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home.
Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Radon gas escapes from the ground into the air outside. When radon mixes with the air outside, it’s not a problem: the air outside dilutes the amount of radon. But when radon seeps into a closed-in space like a house, it can be harmful. The radon gas can become trapped inside. You and your family can breathe in high levels of radon without knowing it
How does radon get in your house?
Radon can come out of the soil and water and seep into cracks and openings in your home, especially on the lower floor, basement, or crawlspace. Radon gas can get into your home through many openings, including:
- Unfinished floors.
- Sump pumps.
- Cracks in the basement floor or foundation.
To solve your radon problem, you need an expert to find out where exactly the radon is getting in. Shield Foundation repair can conduct an inspection, find where radon is seeping in, advise you of the situation and make the necessary repairs.
