Health Tip: How Radon Can Get in Your Home

It's an odorless but toxic gas

(HealthDay News) -- Radon is an odorless but toxic gas that can seep into buildings, including ground-level homes.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, noting that elevated radon levels are found in about 1 in 15 homes, says the gas can enter a structure:

  • Through cracks found in solid flooring.
  • Through construction joints.
  • Through cavities or cracks in the walls.
  • Through gaps that form in suspended flooring.
  • Through gaps around service pipes.
  • Through your water supply.
