What is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas that’s formed during the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Radon exits the ground and can seep into your home through cracks and holes in the foundation, and can also contaminate well water. Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer next to cigarette smoking.
Approximately 22,000 deaths a year are attributed to radon. Every 25 minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with radon-induced lung cancer. A simple test can save a life!

How Do I reduce my Radon Levels?
There are several methods a radon contractor can use to lower radon levels in your home. The most common system is called a “sub-slab depressurization system”. This system prevents radon from entering your home by suction with a radon fan, and venting it through a pipe or pipes to the air above the house where it is quickly diluted naturally. RDS is an AARST/NRPP-certified contractor that can help test and build the necessary infrastructure to remove radon from your environment.
In most cases, radon mitigation is a non-invasive and straightforward integration in your home or office. Call us today to learn more about the process and procedure: 303.444.5253
