Radon Testing

Colorado Springs Radon Testing Information

WHAT IS RADON?

Radon is a naturally occurring inert gas. Studies have shown that it is carcinogenic when exposed at certain levels. In fact, The Surgeon General has warned that it is the second leading cause of lung cancer.  Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.  Areas in Colorado have some of the higher levels of radon.  For more information, visit the EPA's website.

HOW IS RADON TESTED?

There are several methods for radon testing.  Although different in the way the way results are analyzed, they are all very similar. Typically, in Real Estate transactions, the short term method is used.  The test takes 48 hours and should be done in the lowest level of a home. It is imperative to minimize opening doors and windows during the test. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

WHAT IF THE TEST SHOWS A HIGH LEVEL OF RADON?

If the test results show an elevated level of radon, don't panic!  It is a misconception that radon is very difficult and costly to remove.  In Colorado Springs, the cost is typically between $800.00 and $2,000.00, (average is $1,200.00).  Once radon testing confirms a problem exists, I can help you locate a reputable specialist to eradicate it.
