The thing that makes radon gas so dangerous is that it occurs naturally and is nearly impossible to detect without the proper equipment. While some radon gas in your home may not have any effect, the Environmental Protection Agency says that is levels are above 4.0pCi/L there is an increase in health risks.
Radon gas develops naturally from soil from the breakdown of uranium. At any given point, your home will have radon gas. Colorado’s soil conditions put many people at risk as the average level per home is above 7.0pCi/L. Since Colorado is more susceptible to higher levels of exposure, it is imperative that your home is tested. If your radon levels are above 4.0 pCi/l we can work quickly to get your mitigation system installed right away.
Since Colorado has a higher content of uranium in the soil, radon gas is able to seep its away into residential and commercial buildings much quicker than the rest of the United States. Radon gas is released when the uranium breaks down.
Cracks and holes in the foundation of the building become traps for the gas as it gets into your home. Once it makes it inside, it will take over the air of your home. The purpose of radon mitigation is to create a safe exit for the gas and keep it away from the living areas of your home where people can be exposed to it. While there is no home or building that is completely safe from radon gas, every building can made safer with the proper radon mitigation techniques.
There are some devices on the market that claim to be able to monitor radon gas; however, these devices are not the most accurate. The best way to evaluate the level of radon gas in your home is to use a charcoal test or have a licensed specialist install a monitor. Most people do not even realize there are exposed to radon gas until they start to show symptoms.
People may not show symptoms from the effects right away, but long-term exposure to high levels can cause symptoms that include frequent coughing, difficulty breathing, chronic respiratory infections, and potentially deadly lung cancer. American Radon LLC is locally owned by a Colorado family, and we are proud of our region and want to see our community members safe and healthy. While testing and mitigation are the services we provide at American Radon LLC, it is not our only mission. We care about helping people and building awareness for this dangerous gas.
At American Radon LLC, we care deeply about families which is why we provide free radon testing kits. We include lab fees and processing so that you have nothing to worry about. Our free test kits use the tried and true charcoal method to determine the levels of radon gas. There some precautions to take since the tests can be influenced by weather conditions, but the test can be done at any time of the year. All you need to do is place the test in the lowest livable area in the house.
Think about a space that people have access to regularly rather than a crawl space or garage. For 48-72 hours, keep all external doors, windows, and vents closed so the charcoal test can get the most accurate measurements. After that time, mail your test to the third-party lab in a Priority Envelope for processing.
The test should arrive in 2-3 business days. It is crucial that the test is mailed as soon as possible and no later than 10 days after the test. The lab will provide our team with the results and we can advise you on the next steps depending on the results.
Our professional specialists can perform mitigation services all over Lafayette including townhomes, HOA communities, business complexes, multi-family housing units, and single-family homes.

With risks to radon exposure becoming more well known, many builders are installing what is called a “passive radon system” before framing the new home. These passive systems are basically the skeleton of a full mitigation system and includes the piping from the basement slab all the way up to the attic.
Once the home is completed and tested, if the levels are above 4.0 pci/l we can then come in and activate the system with a radon fan. If done correctly, these systems are very efficient and are hidden within the finished framed walls.
