Colorado Multifamily Radon Testing

colorado radon mapColorado Multifamily Radon Testing – With radon gas being the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, it is imperative that all individuals, whether renting a unit in an apartment complex or owning a home, be concerned about the level of exposure to radon gas in your living environment.

Nearly one out of every two pre-mitigation home radon tests is above the action limit of 4.0 pCi/L. Forty eight percent (48.2%) of the homes that have been tested in Colorado have a 4.0 or greater level of Picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L). To put that in perspective, The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a level of 2.7 aCi/L. So, Coloradoans on average have a higher level of exposure to radon gas than the safe level recommended by WHO.
