Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas. It is created naturally from the decay uranium in the soil under and around your house. Uranium is found in differing levels in soil and rock throughout the world and every home has the possibility of having radon gas. So how do you know if your home has radon gas and are there signs of radon poisoning you should look for?

Are There Noticeable Signs Of Radon Poisoning?

The CDC states that there are no known symptoms specific to radon poisoning. However, the EPA has stated that any exposure to radon gas could carry a risk of contracting lung cancer. In fact radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, and first leading cause among non-smokers. Because of this, it is possible to experience problems such as:

  • Persistent Cough
  • Wheezing
  • Heavy Breathing
  • Lung Infections

To determine if your home has radon gas, you must test for it. Radon cannot be detected by smell or sight. The EPA recommends that every home be tested for radon gas. Elevated levels of radon, if found should be removed for the health and safety of your family.
