Learn More about Radon in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Radon is a colorless, tasteless, and odorless gas of which prolonged exposure to can cause everyone in your household to be susceptible to lung cancer. This gas is a byproduct of uranium decay, which occurs naturally in the soil beneath and surrounding your home. If your home is located atop a high concentration of radon, it seeps through the porous concrete foots and slabs of your home, where it gets trapped. 

Don’t underestimate your risk: The World Health Organization cites radon as causing 15% of the world’s lung cancer cases, and kills 20,000 people a year, most of which are non–smokers. Of course, smokers typically know their risks, but how do you know if your property has elevated radon levels? Thorough radon testing.
