Wisconsin Radon Gas?

Radon is a gas that is produced by the breakdown of uranium in the soil. Radon can't be seen, smelled, or tasted and has been proven to cause cancer due to exposure over a long period of time. Radon is an invisible and invasive gas that penetrates your homes slab, crawlspace, or basement areas through cracks and imperfections in your homes structure. Radon is all around us even in the outdoor air, but when it can collect in your home it can be dangerous.

*the map above is not 100% accurate as there are many factors for what radon levels actually are in every area, This map should only be used as a reference to the areas and what the areas average indoor radon levels may be. No matter what your radon level can only be determined by an actual radon test administered by or ordered from a professional radon testing facility.
