About Radon


Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas released from the decay of rock and soil. It seeps through the ground and diffuses into the air. In areas without adequate ventilation, such as basements, radon can accumulate and increase the risk of lung cancer. Basement and first floors typically have the highest radon levels because of their contact with the soil.

Radon is often the single largest contributor to an individual's background radiation dose and the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, with an estimated 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year related to lung cancer.

" I was worried about the looks of a radon system on our house as well as losing some space in our utility room because I thought I knew the best place for it to go.  I even considered doing the job myself.  Kale came in to give me an estimate, suggested a different location, and we couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.  The system is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.  The cost was quite reasonable and the job was done professionally.  After our experience, I’ve recommended Kale to some of my co-workers and friends."
