What is radon? Radon is an element that occurs naturally in soil and rocks. You cannot smell, taste, or see radon but being exposed to it can cause health problems. How is radon prevented from entering homes? Exposure to radon is mitigated by sealing any cracks in the walls and floors and installing a system that collects radon from the ground and directs it up through the pipes and away from the home.
