Golden Colorado’s beautiful scenery helps our towns grow and thrive. The downside is that our gorgeous landscape comes with a unsee danger. Because of Golden’s geology, we have higher levels of radon in our soil than the rest of the country. Radon is created when uranium breaks down in the soil and creates radium. Over time, radium turns into radon gas. This gas is invisible, colorless, and odorless while potentially being life-threatening. If this gas is present in your home you are going to need radon mitigation in Golden.
It is the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. The reality is that fifty percent of households in Colorado have high radon levels in their homes. While this may be scary, there is something that can be done to reduce it.
As Coloradans ourselves, we put education at the forefront of our business model. We hope to save lives by spreading awareness of the dangers of radon. When you are exposed to radon for one year, it is the same as getting 200 chest x-rays.
In order to determine whether or not you are being exposed to harmful levels of radon, you would need to conduct a radon test. If you do have high levels the our professional radon mitigation in Golden service will keep your home safe from exposure.
Some companies may have a monitor or easy-to-read digital tests to check radon levels. The fact of the matter is that most of these simple tests are less accurate from other testing methods. They must recalibrated regularly and often. You as the homeowner will not have a reliable way to tell if your test was calibrated correctly on your own. You could think you are safe from radon levels in your home, but actually be in danger.
In our experience, a charcoal test is the most accurate. All you need to do is set the test up in the lowest livable space of your home for 2-3 days with windows sealed. The charcoal will collect radon atoms that can be examined at a laboratory later.
Since we want to focus on keeping families safe, we offer charcoal testing for free. Anyone can simply give us a call or fill out a form on our website and we will mail you a free test. After setting the test out for a few days, you will mail it to the lab. The lab will evaluate your test and we contact you with the results. If your test shows safe radon levels, you’re done! However, you should continue to test every year to ensure safety.
So, you’ve gotten your free test and mailed it to the lab. American Radon, LLC will review your results will call and offer you support for the next steps. If you have safe results you will just need to test annually. If you have high results we offer radon mitigation in Golden to fit any household.

Sub slab radon mitigation is the most common and simply uses suction to push radon into a pit and into PVC piping using a fan. Drain tile mitigation builds upon existing french drains below a house’s foundation and is extremely efficient. Homes equipped with sump pump puts can draw in radon gas, and a fan can force the gas out.
