Radon Testing

There are two types of testing that we offer:  


One is a DIY test kit. This kit is a Liquid Scintillation Short Term Radon Test Kit by AccuStar and is a 2-4-day radon in air test kit. Kit includes one test vial, analysis, and return postage within the U.S.A. Usually, results are emailed within 5-7 days. We sell that for $10 with a free at-home estimate for a radon mitigation system. 


Second is a CRM (Continuous Radon Monitor). This test is a 2-3-day long process that will give you 48 radon measurements over a 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 subcontract this 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. That test is $150


A free post-mitigation test is supplied by us. It is best to let the radon mitigation system work for 1 week after installation before setting up the test. Directions are supplied in the kit as well as a link on your invoice. 


Contact us today if you would like a professional to answer any additional questions or to get your home tested.

Colorado Has High Levels of Radon

 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).

What to Do Next

 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.
