At Professional Advantage we provide a complete radon testing and mitigation service for residential and commercial application. Radon is the second leading cause for lung cancer today following cigarettes as the number one for lung cancer. Radon comes from the breakdown of uranium/radium in the soils, which enters the home/building and is breathed into our lungs. The decay products from Radon cause damage to our lungs through alpha rays, which are emitted as radon breaks down through natural process.
Upon testing for radon, Professional Advantage will provide you with the results and our recommendation. If the radon levels are at or above the acceptable levels, which the EPA/NEHA have established to be 4.0 pCi/l for corrective action, an appointment can be made in order to provide you with the best options for mitigating the Radon from your home or building.
EPA says that 1 in every 15 homes has a high level of Radon above the take action amount of 4 picas curies per liter. (4 pCi/L) It is unfortunate but most of the Colorado area is in a high level zone according to the EPA map of high level zones in the United States.
