What Is Radon, and Why Test for it?
Radon is an odorless, colorless radioactive gas that occurs naturally from the breakdown of uranium in the soil. It's strongly recommended that homeowners test for radon, as it is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. It enters the home through cracks in the pipes, foundation, floors & walls, slowly becoming a silent threat to you and your family. Most of Northern Colorado lies in Radon Zone 1, which typically sees higher levels of radon at 4pCi/L or higher that may require mitigation.
48 hour radon testing available
We provide the option to perform continuous radon testing for a minimum of 48 hours, or longer if preferred, to obtain the most accurate reading. This requires that the testing device be dropped off at or before inspection, and retrieved at a later date.
Radon levels change over time, and it's recommended that homes be tested every two years to monitor these fluctuations. If the testing reveals unsafe radon levels, above 4pCi/L, homeowners should consider hiring a certified radon mitigation contractor. They can provide affordable solutions, such as sealing any cracks, and installing an Active Soil Depressuration (ASD) System to reroute radon gas.
