Ra-don (ra' don) n. symbol Rn A colorless, radioactive, inert gaseous element formed bydisintegration of radium. Atomic number 86: atomic weight 222; melting point -7 1 C; boiling point6l.8c;specific gravity (solid) 4; valence 0; half-life 3.823 days

Radon is an odorless, tasteless colorless gas that is found throughout the world in varying concentrations. Radon occurs naturally and enters building structures as a soil gas that utilizes existing cracks in concrete floors or walls, open soil in crawl spaces, improperly or poorly sealed floor drains or pipe entry points in floor slabs. Without significant ventilation and air exchange in crawl spaces and under the floor slab (sub-slab ventilation and air exchange in crawls spaces of homes and other structures), Radon concentrations can buildup within a structure. Radon can also cause severe respiratory problems, and it is therefore important to ensure home owners that radon gas is not present. The radon is collected by the SafeHome Inspector into cans and analyzed by the lab. The cans cannot be opened until after at least 48 hours. The results are e-mailed or faxed to the agent or buyer of the property approximately 3 days after the inspection is completed. Radon Inspections are valid for 90 days.
