Radon, a naturally-occurring gas, is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. Radon testing is the only way to know if your home has unsafe levels of Radon gas.
Radon gas is produced when uranium 238 and other radioactive elements break down in soil, rock, and water. Released into the air, it accumulates in poorly ventilated areas. Exposure to Radon causes cancer. It is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the U.S.
3 out of 4 Colorado homes have unsafe Radon levels
According to a Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment report, all structures in Colorado have the potential for elevated indoor radon levels. An elevated rating for radon is 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher. It sounds very technical. Don’t worry; we will walk you through the results.
What to expect
Horizon Home Inspections will conduct a radon test over a 48-hour period. A radon graph and interval report will show the detected levels of radon during the test. Based on the results, we will advise you on any radon mitigation procedures to alleviate any radon issues.
