When Radon is released from the ground into the outdoor air, it is diluted and not a concern. However, in enclosed spaces like homes, it can accumulate to high levels which can be a risk to the health of you and your family.
The air pressure inside your home is lower than the soil surrounding the foundation. This difference draws air and other gases, including radon, from the soil into your home. Radon can enter a home any place it finds an opening, cracks in foundations, construction joints, gaps around service pipes, support posts, window casements, floor drains, sumps or cavities inside walls.
