Radon is a naturally occurring, odorless, colorless, and tasteless
radioactive gas. It is produced from the radioactive decay of radium
which is found in most soils as well as earthen construction materials.
The effects of long exposure to high radon levels can be detrimental. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States after smoking, and the leading cause among non-smokers. The EPA estimates that 1 in 5 Florida homes have elevated radon levels.
Testing is the only way to know if your home has potentially high-risk levels of radon. The map below shows the Zones by County in the State of Florida. Although there are areas of greater risk, homes with elevated levels have been found in all three zones.
