How Common Is Radon in Central Virginia?

Radon is a radioactive gas found in homes and businesses throughout Central Virginia.

Where Does Radon Come From?

Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation, but it can also enter your home through well water.
