High levels of radon gas are found in 50% of Colorado homes, according to the CO Department of Public Health & Environment. Radon gas and other indoor air pollutants can put you and your family at risk for health problems. You may already know about the negative symptoms associated with mold, dust mites, and pet dander, but what about radon? Radon is a radioactive gas that's invisible, odorless, and tasteless, and it's the second leading cause of lung cancer.
The only way to identify hazardous concentrations of radon gas in a home or building is through radon testing. This is especially important for Pueblo since it is in "Zone 1" with a potential for high radon levels, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). So, if you're looking to get a radon test, install a radon mitigation system, or improve the indoor air quality of your property, Purple Mountain Radon can help.

The primary causes of high radon levels and other indoor air quality problems are outdoor pollutants getting inside through cracks and gaps, increased moisture and humidity, pests, and allergens. This includes radon gas, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold, dust mites, and pet dander.
When there's not enough fresh outdoor air allowed inside the home or building, indoor air pollution can increase. This can contribute to or worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. Some pollutants at high levels, including radon, can contribute to cancer and other serious health conditions.
Radon gas is formed from the natural breakdown of uranium found in soils, rocks, and water. It can get into homes and other buildings through cracks and openings in the foundation, floors, or walls. Radon can become trapped inside the basement, crawl space, or living space, and build up to an unsafe level. Since radon is invisible, odorless, and tasteless, the only way to identify it in the home or building is through radon testing. This is especially important for Pueblo, as the EPA identified Pueblo County as an area with a higher risk for increased radon.
If the property has dangerous concentrations, we can install a radon mitigation system to reduce radon to safe levels. The qualified radon specialists at Purple Mountain Radon provide thorough radon testing and customizable radon mitigation system installations.
Along with radon gas, there are other indoor air pollutants that may cause health problems, including pollen, pet dander, and mold spores. Some indoor air pollutants can make asthma, respiratory issues, and allergies worse. Fortunately, Purple Mountain Radon can help you improve your indoor air quality.
We offer a range of indoor air quality solutions, including radon reduction systems, ventilation systems, dehumidifiers, air purifiers, and more. Our indoor air quality specialists can recommend the right improvements for your home!
Although radon testing is recommended for all homes, it's especially critical in Pueblo, where the EPA has identified a significant potential for high radon levels. At Purple Mountain Radon, we use a continuous radon detector to measure radon levels for 48 hours. Then, if the test result shows high radon levels, we’ll recommend the best method to lower the radon levels in your home safely, including installing a radon mitigation system.
Take the first step in protecting yourself and your family against radon exposure by scheduling a radon test today.
Radon reduction is recommended for a radon level of 4 picocuries per liter, pCi/L or higher. Installing a radon mitigation system can effectively reduce the level of radon gas in the home. We provide radon testing, radon mitigation, and radon system inspections for Pueblo homes.
The primary method of radon reduction is soil suction. This method prevents radon from entering the home by drawing the radon gas from below the home through a pipe and releasing it safely into the outdoor air. Your radon specialist will inspect your home and design a radon reduction system based on how high your radon level is, the size of your home, and the type of foundation your home has.
After the installation, our radon professionals can routinely check your radon mitigation system to make sure it's working correctly to keep your radon level low. Purple Mountain Radon has the knowledge and skills to effectively lower high radon levels. Contact us today for help!
