How Radon Can Enter Your Home
Radon can seep into homes through small spaces and openings, such as cracks, floor drains, sump pump openings, wall/floor joints in basements, pores in walls and concrete and through well water. Some areas in the US have a much higher concentration of radon than others. The EPA estimates that nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the US has an elevated level of radon.
