The test is a 2-3-day long process that will give you 48 radon measurements over continuous two-day period. The data can then be used as a tool to decide whether or not a radon mitigation system is necessary. We sub-contract the initial test so that you get non-biased results. If you want to get your home tested quickly, this is the best way to go about it. The monitors will be in the BEST place in your home to make sure we get the most accurate readings. The free post-mitigation test supplied by us is sent out to a lab and the results typically come within 5 days. Contact us today if you would like a professional to answer any additional questions or to get your home tested.
Here is a map of Radon zones from the EPA. Most of Northern Colorado is in Zone 1. Zone 1 counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level greater than 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) (red zones). The south/western part of Colorado is in Zone 2. Zone 2 counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level between 2 and 4 pCi/L (orange zones).
The EPA recommends if you have a result of 4 pCi/L or higher a follow up test to confirm whether mitigation is recommended. If levels are 10 pCi/L or higher a second short term test should be administered by a professional as soon as possible. If you are in the Northern Colorado area, contact us about either testing or mitigation or both if you fear you have high levels of radon.
