Radon gas is an invisible, odorless, tasteless, radioactive substance that can pose a serious health risk if there are high concentrations inside the home or building. While radon gas can impact homes all over the country, Colorado Springs is in "Zone 1" with a potential for high radon levels, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In fact, 50% of all Colorado homes have high radon levels, according to the CO Department of Public Health & Environment. And since radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer, you don't want to wait to find out if you've got high radon levels in your home!

Radon gas comes from the natural breakdown of uranium found in soils, rocks, and water. And while high radon levels are a problem in every state across the U.S., Colorado is considered a higher risk, as it falls within "Zone 1" of areas with increased radon levels, according to the EPA. Radon gas can seep through the soil, into the air, and through cracks and openings in building and home foundations. Properties trap radon in living spaces, where it may build up to dangerous levels, leading to an increased risk of lung cancer and other health problems.
Since the gas is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, the only way to know if your Colorado Springs home has high levels is to schedule a radon test.
The American Lung Association recommends that all homes and properties get radon testing to check for high radon levels. Since the gas is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, a radon test is the only reliable way to identify the gas in a home or building. This is especially important in Colorado Springs, as this area is in "Zone 1" at being at a higher risk for increased concentrations of radon gas, according to the U.S. EPA.
