[ARCHIVED] January is Radon Action Month

radon month

Radon comes from the natural radioactive breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It is an invisible, odorless, tasteless, cancer-causing radongas that enters buildings through the numerous cracks, holes, and pipes in the foundation. It can also enter a building from well water.  Radon can be found in any building, but homes are the most concerning since that’s where families spend the most time.

Radon is prevalent in Colorado and in Boulder County. One out of every two homes in Boulder County has elevated radon levels. The EPA has ranked Boulder County as “Zone 1,” which means the average house will likely exceed the EPA’s action level of 4.0 pCi/L.
