What is radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas formed from uranium. The gas is colourless and odourless. In high concentrations this gas can be damaging to our health. It damages the lungs and can lead in the long term to lung cancer.

Where do we find radon?

The gas can enter your home through cracks, joints in the wall, cracks in the floor, crawlspace or cellar or via sanitary pipes.

What can you do?

Existing housing:

  • Sealing the building’s floorboards
  • Drain the radon gas through e.g. ventilation

New housing:

For new buildings, it is always recommended to take precautions against radon in sensitive areas. At that point, this danger is simple to prevent.

  • You can do so by applying the radon-proof IKO radon Barrier membrane under the building’s floorboards, crawlspace or cellar.
