  • It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
  • Nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the U.S. is estimated to have elevated radon levels.
  • Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer (behind smoking) and is estimated to cause 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.
