As in well know large portions of the US is granite based. As Granite deteriorates over time it emits the radioactive gas RADON in very small quantities. Radon is in fact odorless, tasteless and colorless, but it is slightly heavier than air and tends to accumulate in the basements and lower parts of buildings with poor ventilation or air movement. Radon itself has a very short half life of 3.8 days so it dissipates quickly but unless ventilated will actually build up to a harmful level.
Buts as it deteriorates the so called daughters of Radon leaves microscopic solid particles which attach themselves to dust and surfaces and this is the dangerous substance that is aggravating to one’s well being.
Breathing in Radon or the contaminated dust for prolonged periods is harmful to one’s health. For a start it is carcinogenic and is a principle cause of lung cancer in non smokers. But other breathing diseases also can be attributed to the contamination by Radon and its daughters.
Fortunately Radon is easy to get rid of. It is a gas and can easily be blown away. There are 2 aspects to this process; detection and elimination.

If the results return a positive for Radon build up it is advisable to install a method of elimination. Here is where SWAT Enviromental has a simple and effective answer.
