Radon Gas


Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is a bi-product of decaying uranium found in different soil types and Utah has one of the highest concentrations of radon gas of any state in the US (1 out of 3 homes have high levels of radon gas issues based on a 2011 KSL news report)

Radon is a radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer from high levels of exposure over a longer period of time (10+ pCi/L over 20-year timeframe). The EPA studies show exposure to radon gas to be the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the US.

Radon is measured in picocuries per liter (pCi/L), and the EPA recommends 1.3 pCi/L or below as a safe amount of threshold for a living space. The EPA has deemed levels between 1.3 pCi/L and 3.9 pCi/L to be monitored/tested annually and at 4.0 pCi/L or above as the “action level” at which you should take proper measures to reduce radon gas levels in your home.
