    Soil is a major source of radon; homes with no barrier between the soil and the interior are most vulnerable. For example a dirt floor in the basement or flaws in a concrete floor slab can leak radon into the confined spaces of your home.

    In some locations where water from highly radioactive wells is used, the radon dissolved in the groundwater and used in the home can out gas, particularly with turbulent or heated water such as in washing machines and showering.

    Radon can seep through walls and come out of radon rich water in homes.  It can even come out of building materials that are used to build the house.  It is much more likely that radon levels will be high in the workplace rather than in the home.  Radon also comes from ordinary rocks and soil as well.
