Radon Testing and Information: Is Your Home Safe?

What is Radon Gas?

Radon gas is an odorless radioactive gas from decaying uranium underneath the earth’s surface. Dangerous levels of this gas may be in your home.

What is the risk to your family?

According to the EPA: Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. The EPA estimates that over 21,000 deaths per year are preventable by lowering the radon levels in your home below the acceptable level of 4 pCi/L.The Environmental Protection Agency’s Map of Radon Zones in the state of Colorado designates this Colorado County as a high risk area for radon levels over 4 pCi/L.

What should I do? 

Have your home tested now by calling A Better Home Inspection at 720-570-0767. We utilize the laboratory recommended by the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors for our radon testing.

What happens if I have Radon Gas in my house?

If radon is found in your home A Better Home Inspection has negotiated a 5% reduced price with a Tom Martino recommended radon mitigation company, Ace Radon Company, 303-738-935. We are in no way affiliated with this company so you may choose your own mitigation company if you wish.
