What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring gas which is radioactive. It forms in the ground from the decay of Uranium. Uranium is present in small quantities in all rocks and soils.
Radon gas is colourless, odourless and tasteless. Because it is a gas, radon can travel easily through the ground in to the atmosphere. When radon surfaces in the open air outside buildings, it is quickly diluted to harmless concentrations.
BUT when it enters a house, it can build up to unacceptably hazardous high concentration levels.
