What is Radon?
RADON is a colorless, odorless, tasteless invisible gas.

The EPA has listed radon the second leading cause of lung cancer, cigarettes as number one. As naturally occurring uranium in the soils break down, radon is created.

As radon enters our home we breathe it into our lungs. When radon decays, Alfa rays are emitted which can cause damage to the lungs.

This is why testing your home or business for elevated radon levels is recommended.

The EPA has set the Recommended Action Level at 4pCi/Liter.


Radon in Colorado

But, I've been told there isn't any radon in Colorado?! According to K.R. Tremblay Jr, a Colorado State University Extension housing specialist and Professor, Colorado does have radon.  From a report posted on CSU Extension's website, found here,

"Surveys show that homes in most Colorado counties have the potential for radon levels above EPA’s recommended action level. EPA has developed three radon designations, ranging from Zone 1 (red) with the highest recommended action level to Zone 3 with the lowest recommended action level. The EPA map of radon zones for Colorado (Figure 2) shows the majority of counties are designated as Zone 1, with no counties in Zone 3."


Figure 2: EPA map of radon zones for Colorado.
Zone 1 (red), high risk (greater than 4pCi/L).
Zone 2 (yellow), moderate risk (2-4 pCi/L)


"Because radon levels are influenced by a variety of factors—soil type and moisture, how “tight” the home is, type of heating and ventilation system, movement of air and groundwater, air pressure, and lifestyle behavior of the occupants—the only way to know if a home has elevated levels of radon is to test it."

If a level above 4pCi/L is found after testing your home, you will want to consider having a mitigation system installed. Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions you may have. On location price quotes are free.
