What is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas which comes from the natural breakdown (i.e., radioactive decay) of radium, which is a decay product of uranium. Uranium and radium are both common elements in the soil. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
Here are a few Exterior radon mitigation system photos to give you the general idea of how a system looks and affects the appearance of a home. The most desirably installed system will always be piped through the house to either the attic or an attached garage. By doing so the amount of potential condensation produced will be decreased and the fan will have a longer life. Other upgrades such as gutter down spout and painted exterior are also available.
