Radon Gas: The silent killer
According to the Surgeon General, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer behind cigarettes. Dubuque and other locations in the tri-state area are known to have high levels of radon gas. The gas routinely rises from the ground in very low concentrations outdoors. It becomes a problem in your home if it accumulates under the foundation and leaks into your basement. The result is unsafe concentrations that can be a threat to your family’s health.
