Radon Testing Overview

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that occurs naturally. When radioactive elements in the ground break down, they release radon into the surrounding soil, which eventually rises and releases into the air. If this occurs underneath your home, radon gas can seep in through cracks or gaps in the foundation and begin to build up inside the lower floors of the property.

Radon is carcinogenic, and is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers in the United States. If you allow radon to build up in your home with no mitigation system installed, you may put your family at increased risk to their health.

Radon levels can vary greatly throughout New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado. Although levels are generally lower in the Southwest, each of these states have a potential for moderate or high levels of radon, so homeowners in this region should have their property tested for radon.

National Radon Action Month

December 26, 2022|

Exposure to indoor radon is a serious health risk for home and business owners. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and is responsible for over 20,000 deaths per year. To help raise awareness, promote radon testing, and educate our communities about the dangers of radon, the EPA has designated January as National Radon Action Month here in the United States.

Radon Mitigation System Maintenance

December 15, 2022|

A radon mitigation system is the most effective means of protecting yourself and your family from the dangers of indoor radon. When properly installed, a radon mitigation system will effectively reduce indoor radon levels by up to 99%. However, a common question we get from home and business owners is what maintenance is needed to keep your radon system running as it should.

Radon Across the Southwest

November 28, 2022|

Though it varies from state to state and even county to county, indoor radon is a hazard of which all homeowners should be aware. This naturally occurring radioactive gas is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers in the US and is found in homes across the country, including the American Southwest. As such, the EPA and NRPP strongly advise all homeowners to have their property tested prior to purchase and have an appropriate mitigation system installed.
