You can’t see, smell, or taste radon but it could be present at dangerous levels in your home. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Surgeon General urge Americans to protect their health by testing homes for radon, and taking acting when levels are above 4 pCi/L or higher.

Recent studies find that longer exposure to lower concentrations of radon can be more damaging than short exposures to extremely high concentrations. Therefore, a remediation system should be considered if you or your loved ones spend significant time in an environment where radon levels exceed 2.7 pCi/L. This includes homes where:


  • People work, live, exercise, or hobby in the basement.

  • Kids spend prolonged periods in the basement playing video games or watching movies.

  • Pets are kenneled in underground areas.

  • Every home with a smoker! The combination of radon gas and cigarette smoke creates a greater risk for lung cancer than either factor alone.

Radon Levels Vary Across the Nation — Levels of radon depend on the characteristics of rock and soil in the area. Colorado ranks 6th in the nation for highest radon levels. Find your county’s radon level using this interactive map (and read on to learn Five RAD Facts About Radon)!


How Can I Test My Home? — Do-it-yourself radon detection kits available in most hardware or home supply stores. You can also hire a professional to test radon levels in your home. Qualified contractors can be found through state radon offices, listed on the EPA's website.

My Home Tested Higher Than 2.7. Now What? — The good news is that radon reduction systems really work. Some systems can reduce radon levels by up to 99%! Lowering radon levels requires specific technical knowledge and special skills. Without the proper equipment or technical knowledge, you could inadvertently increase your home's radon level, or create other potential hazards and additional costs. Find a certified mitigator here.
