Risks of Radon in Your West Virginia Home

Radon is an odorless, tasteless, invisible gas that may be present in your home and putting you at risk without you knowing. When you breathe air containing radon over a prolonged period of time, you are at higher risk of developing lung cancer. In fact, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. If you are a smoker and live in a home with high radon levels, your risk of developing lung cancer is even higher.

Radon gas can be found in any house. That's why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that every home is tested for radon. Your home is where you spend most of your time, which means exposure to radon is most likely to occur at home.
