Despite its quaint charm and stunning vistas, Fort Collins and the rest of Larimer County are at high risk of indoor radon exposure, falling into the EPA’s Radon Zone 1. Approximately half of the homes in Fort Collins have shown radon levels above the EPA’s recommended action level of 4 pCi/L, with 15% showing levels of 10 pCi/L or higher. Regardless of whether you have lived in your home for years or are looking to purchase a home in the Fort Collins area, it is highly recommended that you have your home professionally tested and treated for radon.
