Proudly Serving the Durango Area
South of the San Juan Mountains along the shore of the Animas River is the City of Durango. Known for its mountainous vistas, year-round good weather, and rich history, it is plain to see why this former mining town is the most populous city in La Plata County. Durango features more than just natural splendor; from the various bars, restaurants, and boutique shops along its historical Main Avenue to its many music festivals and the world-renowned Iron Horse Bicycle Classic, Durango is a lively city with thriving communities.
Durango and the rest of La Plata County are designated in Radon Zone 2, indicating a moderate risk of indoor radon exposure. However, even a moderate risk of radon should not be taken lightly. Recent reports from the Colorado Department of Health & Environment have shown nearly 50% of homes in Colorado experience elevated levels of indoor radon above the EPA’s action of pCi/L. As such, if you own a home in Durango, it is highly recommended you have it tested and treated for indoor radon.

The average recorded level of indoor radon in Durango and La Plata County is between 2 and 4 pCi/L. While overall this is below the EPA’s recommended action level, it is still recommended you have your home tested at least twice a year. As radon is produced by the breakdown of in soil, indoor radon levels can fluctuate over time, resulting in potentially higher levels of indoor radon and, as a result, a higher risk of radon-related illnesses.
Our skilled Radon Measurement Professionals (RMPs) perform accurate and efficient radon tests for the people of Durango. We place a specialized measurement device at the lowest point of your property where indoor typically accumulates to collect air samples for 2-4 days. Once enough samples have been gathered, our RMPs will collect the device and send the samples to a lab that specializes in radon analysis. Results will be available within 48 hours of delivery. Our RMPs will answer any questions you have and explain what further action needs to be taken.
