REGION’s Radon Expert: January is Ideal for Radon Testing

Make a New Year’s Resolution this year that can improve the health of your whole family – test your home for radon. The radon experts at Complete Basement Systems say that January is the best time to test for radon, the odorless, colorless gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. In fact, the EPA designated January as National Radon Action Month to alert people to this gas that kills more than 20,000 people each year.

AURORA, CO – Make a New Year’s Resolution this year that can improve the health of your whole family – test your home for radon. The radon experts at Complete Basement Systems say that January is the best time to test for radon, the odorless, colorless gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. In fact, the EPA designated January as National Radon Action Month to alert people to this gas that kills more than 20,000 people each year.

The experts at Complete Basement Systems recommend the following steps for homeowners during Radon Action Month:

-       Test your home for radon with a simple radon test kit

-       If your results show high levels of radon, contact us at 303-805-8751 for a free estimate

-       Tell your family and friends about the risks of radon and encourage them to check their homes

-       Ask about radon levels at your child’s school, your church, or your workplace. Radon levels can be elevated anywhere there is radon in the ground!

“It is important to consider passive mitigation. We offer a 20 mil vapor barrier that is installed in your crawl space which makes us unique from other Radon mitigation companies,” says radon expert Ryan Todd of Complete Basement Systems.

Radon is a radioactive gas caused by the decay of uranium in the earth.  As radon gas rises through the soil, it can seep into homes through cracks in the foundation, walls, crawl spaces, sump pumps and wells.  The only way to know if your home has a high level of radon is to test for it.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 4 picocuries per liter of air unacceptable. If your levels are elevated, Complete Basement Systems can install an affordable and aesthetically pleasing mitigation system in your home.
