Why Should I Be Concerned?
Radon Gas is considered to be a Class A Carcinogen, which means that it is a pollutant that has been studied sufficiently to determine that it has the potential to cause cancer in people. While Radon Gas can be found outdoors, it is able to dissipate quickly and will only be present in low concentrations.
