What's a radon disclosure?

The central goal of the radon gas disclosure required by the state is to raise awareness about the Radon problem. Many people are unaware of the fact that radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in many countries, including the US. According to the US EPA, more than 21,000 radon-induced lung cancer deaths occur each year.  

RADON GAS: Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that, when it has accumulated in a building in sufficient quantities, may present health risks to persons who are exposed to it over time. Levels of radon that exceed federal and state guidelines have been found in buildings in Florida. Additional information regarding radon and radon testing may be obtained from your county health department.
