Where does Radon come from?
Radon is derived from thorium, uranium, and radium, which is what is commonly found in granite. Radon is naturally occurring. It is a byproduct of decomposing uranium, a metal commonly found in the ground across many areas of Colorado, mostly in trace amounts. The presence of this metal in most of the counties is the sole reason for high recorded levels of radon gas.
