Why Is Radon Testing Important
More than 50% of ANY structure in contact with the ground in Colorado has higher radon levels than the EPA recommends. Out of all 50 states, Colorado has the #7 highest amounts of radon due to decomposed granite in the bedrock. Therefore, Radon mitigation is critical for those living in the Colorado greater Denver area and mountains.
Radon Exposure is the second most common cause of lung cancer in the United States. Half of the DNA damaging ionizing radiation a typical person is exposed to in their life comes from radon intrusion into our homes, apartments, schools, and workplaces. Radon testing is the only way to be sure you are not breathing in radon gas and putting yourself at risk for cancer.
Any building in contact with the ground, especially in Colorado, can have dangerous levels of radon. Hiring an ACE Radon professional to perform an inspection, test, and radon system design is the best way to not only detect high radon levels but create a radon mitigation plan to prevent long-term exposure to radon, which is a Class I Carcinogen.
