Radon Mitigation and Remediation Systems Recommended in Denver, Littleton, Broomfield Colorado Homes
Date:4/18/2009

Air Quality Control Agency is recommending radon gas testing, remediation, and radon removal systems for homes in the Greater Denver area. Some of the Colorado towns affected by radon gas are Denver, Littleton, Boulder, Broomfield, Aurora, Longmont, Fort Collins, Parker, Arvada, Englewood, Loveland, and Castle Rock. For homes with radon levels of 4.0 or higher, radon mitigation systems can be installed to fix the problem.

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) April 18, 2009 -- Air Quality Control Agency is recommending radon gas testing, remediation, and radon removal systems for homes in the Greater Denver area. Some of the Colorado towns affected by radon gas are Denver, Littleton, Boulder, Broomfield, Aurora, Longmont, Fort Collins, Parker, Arvada, Englewood, Loveland, and Castle Rock. For homes with radon levels of 4.0 or higher, radon mitigation systems can be installed to fix the problem.

Air Quality Control Agency is one of Colorado's largest radon abatement engineering companies. Their experienced staff utilizes the latest technology to design effective, unobtrusive systems that pull the radon gas out from below the infected home or building. These systems are known as radon reduction systems or radon remediation.

With over 40% of Colorado homes at risk of having dangerous radon levels, testing for this cancer-causing gas should be a regular part of home maintenance. You cannot see, smell, or taste radon but it could be a problem in any home. It doesn't matter if the home is new or old or whether or not it has a basement. All homes should be tested regardless.

According to Air Quality Control Agency, "Radon problems are quite common throughout Colorado. Every home should be tested. When elevated levels are found, the problem can be corrected." Their radon removal crew installs between 2 and 6 of these systems every day. Problem areas (known as radon "pockets") have been found in Denver, Littleton, Boulder, Broomfield, Aurora, Golden, Louisville, Westminster, Lafayette, Erie, Evergreen, Colorado Springs, Commerce City, Morrison, Elizabeth, and Monument. Radon Remediation systems are very common in these areas.

Radon testing is easy and inexpensive. Kits can be purchased from hardware stores or from your local health department. There also electronic radon testing devices available. These radon monitors are highly accurate and can be used for continuous, long-term radon testing.

If you conduct a radon test and the levels are 4.0 or above (measured in Pico Curies per Liter or pCi/L,) you should strongly consider installing a radon mitigation system. These remediation systems consist of PVC pipes that extend from the lowest floor of the home (i.e. basement slab) to the outside of the home. A small suction fan is installed in an inconspicuous location inline with the fan. By activating the system, the radon gas is drawn up the pipe and expelled into the ambient outdoor air. These "radon gas abatement systems" typically reduce the radon levels in the home by up to 99%.

Elevated radon levels have been found in most Colorado counties including Jefferson, Arapahoe, Denver, Adams, Elbert, Douglas, Boulder, Gilpin, Clear Creek, Summit, Park County, and Teller. The Surgeon General suggests that every home should be tested for radon gas.
