Radon Mitigation in Colorado

In this article, we assess the risk of radon gas to citizens of the state of Colorado. These days, it's common knowledge in Colorado that smoking is bad for you. When people think of smoking, they think of lung cancer. The basic reason for it comes down to the fact that one is breathing in carcinogenic gas on a frequent basis. It's no wonder that would lead to vastly increased chances of developing lung cancer. What many Colorado people don't know is that they may be breathing in a similar gas even if they're not a smoker. This gas is called radon, and it's the second most common cause of lung cancer in The Mile-High Centennial State.

What’s worse, it's totally invisible and has no scent or pigment. There's a multitude of people all over the country, including Colorado, who are breathing it in every day without knowing it. That's one of the reasons why radon testing is so important. One can usually acquire a radon testing kit fairly easily right here in Colorado. However, this should only be considered a preliminary measurement. If the results are positive, it's best to then call in the experts for further testing. They'll have more sensitive equipment. The experts will also understand which conditions might interfere with test results based on Colorado and Federal guidelines.

Remove Radon, Colorado

If they confirm the presence of radon, the next step will be to determine where it originates and penetrates into the Colorado dwelling. In The Mile-High Centennial State, radon will typically originate within the soil and migrate into the structure via the foundation voids. Radon occurs as a natural part of the Colorado environment. When one's outside, it's dispersed enough that there's no danger. However, buildings and especially basements can essentially “vacuum draw” concentrated radon inward. The difference in air pressure will essentially create a radon propelling vacuum within the envelope of the Colorado building. This can create very alarming radon levels at a very rapid rate.

Imagine if there was a room of people smoking constantly, day and night. Now imagine that all of that air was continually pumped into your Colorado home. That's essentially what it's like to live in a home which has elevated levels of circulating radon. Thankfully, making a building safe again is usually fairly simple in The Mile-High Centennial State. In general, it's just a matter of sealing entry points and creating “negative pressure” beneath the foundation. In Colorado, a radon reduction system will achieve this. Radon usually enters through cracks within a basement's foundation but is propelled by the pressure relationship between the soil and the Colorado building.

Sealing the cracks alone will not completely cure the radon problem. If it doesn't, there are other methods to further reduce radon levels. This includes increasing air circulation, and changing the general air pressure within a room. However, in Colorado the most effective method of reducing radon levels is sub-slab depressurization using a radon mitigation system. In rare cases, radon might also enter the Colorado home through well water. When people take showers with contaminated water it will then leak into the air. However, in general this is a minor issue and easily treated by installing a radon aeration system. In some cases, a simple filtration system can fix the contaminated water. In summary, radon is a major problem in The Mile-High Centennial State, so test your home today and if levels are above 3.9, fix the problem without delay to protect the wellbeing of your Colorado family.
