Radon is a radioactive gas that is created by the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water.
After that breakdown occurs underground, the gas moves up through the foundation into the home above. This can occur in new and old homes of all kinds, including those with basements or crawl spaces.
Because radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer according to the EPA, they recommend radon testing all homes. Various areas in Central Oregon are classified as moderate risk. Radon testing can help you determine if a mitigation system is necessary in your house. Call Eagle Eye to schedule your radon test today.
