What You Need to Know About Radon Safety

Radon gas poses a serious threat to the health and safety of your home and your family. Radon is a radioactive gas that is produced through the breakdown of uranium in soil, water, and rock. It is an odorless and tasteless gas that is prominent in Colorado. Here at APEX Radon, we take radon mitigation very seriously, which is why we want you to know the facts.

  • How much radon is too much? – The EPA sets the standard for safe radon levels. Anything at or above 4 picocurries per liter is considered dangerous and needs to be mitigated.
  • Why is radon in Denver? – Part of what makes Denver amazing is also the reason it is a hotbed for radon exposure. The Rocky Mountains are uranium-rich, so it seeps into the bedrock that lies underneath much of Denver.
  • Testing for radon – The EPA advises homeowners to test for radon every two years or after any major construction, addition, remodeling, renovation, or maintenance work.

Radon exposure can cause many serious health issues – chief among them is lung cancer. That’s why it’s so important to turn to experts when you are in need of radon mitigation in Denver metro and surrounding cities.

Radon Mitigation FAQs

Radon exposure is a serious matter, and you may have some serious questions about it. We want to make sure that the people of Denver and the surrounding cities have the facts on radon gas mitigation.

  • How do people get radon poisoning? – Radon gas is produced in the Earth, so it seeps into homes from subterranean levels like basements and crawl spaces. When there are cracks in the foundation, floors, or walls, radon can seep into the building and cause serious health issues for the occupants.
  • Why is radon dangerous? – Radon is dangerous because it is a radioactive gas. Over time, exposure to radon gas can cause lung problems. Radon is also very dangerous because it cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted.
  • How to reduce radon in your home – The best way to reduce radon in your home is to test regularly. If it is coming through cracks in the foundation, you can also seal these cracks. If sealing the cracks does not bring radon levels down, a radon mitigation system will have to be installed.
  • What can be done to mitigate radon poisoning? – There are testing devices that you can use to measure the level of radon in your home. However, it is best to leave such a serious matter in the hands of a professional. In some cases, a mitigation system will need to be put in place.

Denver is considered a high-risk area for radon exposure, so don’t wait. If your home or place of business has not been tested for radon within the last year, give us a call as soon as possible.
