What is Radon?
Fort Collins Radon Mitigation hears this simple question quite often.
In layman’s terms, radon is a single atom gas, making it easy for radon to permeate basically any material to find its way into your home. By the way, this is also what makes it so dangerous within your body.
Radon is produced by natural materials when they break down. Rocks, soil, and water contain uranium, thorium, and many other elements. As these things break down, they emit radon for 3-4 days before moving on to become other radioactive byproducts and eventually turning into lead.
Lead poisoning is dangerous and much more immediate than radon poisoning, but the good news is that radon remediation can eliminate the chance of radon turning to lead within your home.
