/EIN News/ Colorado homeowners are urged to conduct radon testing in their homes. Over one-third of all Greater Denver area homes are at risk of having dangerous levels of this gas. When elevated levels are detected, remediation efforts can be made for reduction of the gas (radon mitigation.) www.MitigationSystem.com
Some of the Colorado town that have been affected by radon are Denver, Littleton, Fort Collins, Parker, Arvada, Englewood, Loveland, Boulder, Broomfield, Aurora, Longmont, and Castle Rock. When homes are found to have radon levels of 4.0 or above, radon gas removal systems can be installed to correct the problem. www.RadonMitigation.us
Air Quality Control is one of America’s largest radon removal abatement companies. Their experienced crew utilizes the latest technology to design effective radon reduction systems that draw the radon out from below the foundation of the building or house. These systems are known as radon mitigation systems.
Radon problems are very common throughout central and northern Colorado. All homes should be tested. When elevated levels are detected, they can be reduced.
Because any Colorado home could have a dangerous radon level, testing for this poisonous gas should be a routine part of home ownership. You cannot see it, smell it, or taste it so the only way to know if you have a problem is to test. The age of the home or type of construction have nothing to do with radon entry. Every home should be tested. www.RadonTesting.org
According to Air Quality Control, “Radon problems are very common throughout the state. Colorado residents should conduct a radon test every two years. If they find that their levels are 4 or above, the problem is fixable.” Air Quality’s radon removal crew installs between 10 and 20 of these systems each week.
Radon “hot spots” have been found in Denver, Littleton, Boulder, Broomfield, Aurora, Erie, Evergreen, Colorado Springs, Commerce City, Morrison, Elizabeth, Golden, Louisville, Westminster, Lafayette, and Monument. Radon gas removal systems are very common in those areas.
Testing for radon is easy and doesn’t cost a lot of money. Test kits can be purchased from hardware stores and health departments. There are also electronic radon testing units available. These monitors are very accurate and are good for longer term testing. www.RadonMonitor.com
When radon levels are 4.0 or above it is strongly recommended that a radon abatement system be installed in the home. These systems consist of PVC piping that extends from the lowest floor of the foundation (i.e. basement floor) to the outside of the house. A small vacuum fan is installed in an inconspicuous location inline with the pipe. When the system is activated, the radon gas is drawn out from below the home and vented to the outdoor air. www.RadonReduction.org
Elevated radon levels have been found in most Colorado counties including Jefferson, Arapahoe, Denver, Adams, Elbert, Douglas, Boulder, Gilpin, Clear Creek, Summit, Park County, and Teller. The Surgeon General suggests that every home should be tested for radon gas. www.RadonMitigationDenver.com
