Radon is an invisible, radioactive gas created during the natural breakdown of uranium in rocks and soils. Long-term exposure to radon can be a health hazard. Radon can seep into a home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Any home can have a radon problem, not just those built on soil and rock types with high geologic potential for radon release.
