About Radon

Radon is a naturally occurring gas that comes from the radioactive breakdown of Uranium in the soil, rock and water. Radon is odorless colorless and tasteless. According to the EPA 21,000 people each year are estimated to die in the U.S from radon and approximately 50% of homes in Colorado have high radon levels. Good news is can be prevented. PRC Uses the latest technology to test for Radon and provides a report with the Radon level as well as a plan of action moving forward per the EPA's recommendations. 

What you need to know

Colorado has moderate to high radon levels - so, about 50% of homes will test high for radon.

During Testing:

The testing apparatus must not be moved or disturbed in any way. 

Closed house conditions must be maintained until the device is retrieved by the tester, even if that time extends beyond the minimum 48-hour time period.

  • All windows and exterior doors must be closed 12 hours prior to the test placement and remain closed at all times except for momentary entry and exit.

  • External-internal air exchange systems such as attic & window fans cannot be operated.

  • Fans that are part of a radon-reduction system or small exhaust fans operating for only short periods of time (such as bathroom fans) may run during the test. 

  • Air conditioners that are not exchanging outside air are permitted. Central A/C systems are permitted to run.
