Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer and is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. The U.S. EPA has classified Colorado as a Zone 1, which means that homes have a high potential of indoor radon concentrations that exceed recommended exposure levels. Radon can enter homes and buildings by way cracks and holes in the foundation, sump pits, crawlspaces, and other places that are in contact with the ground.
