Radon is a radioactive gas that emanates from rocks and soils, where soil infiltration is the main source of residential radon. Almost every household can be in danger when it comes to radon exposure. Homes with crawl spaces are more prone to radon presence. Studies show that the concentrations of radon go almost ten times higher than usual during the winters and the presence of radon in such large quantities is dangerous for every member of the households. Exposure to high levels of radon can lead to lung cancer which causes thousands of deaths per year.
