Just as it's important to be prepared for wildfires and floodwaters, those in the Pacific Northwest should know the dangers of another hazardous element lurking just below their homes. Radon.
Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs with the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water beneath our homes. It is colorless and odorless, making it hard to detect, and it can enter through cracks and holes in the foundation, especially in the basement.
It's estimated that over 30 states across the country have elevated radon levels, which can be damaging to our health over time.
"Not all countries, states, or cities are known to have high radon areas, but that does not mean that individual homes are automatically free of any radon risk. Remember, high radon levels have been found in homes situated in areas with generally low radon levels." - Airthings
