Radon is a naturally occurring gas originating from the ground. The EPA and Florida Department of Health say radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, right behind cigarette smoking, killing 21,000 Americans every year. Unacceptable levels of radon are found in 25 to 33% of the homes in SW Florida. Fortunately, elevated levels of radon can be corrected to acceptable limits. The corrective measures normally cost from $1,200 to $3,000 (or more on larger homes). We highly recommend having your home tested for elevated levels of radon after the builder has finished all punch list items and no longer has to go into the house.
