The Importance of Radon Testing

Date Published: April 26, 2015

Scott Home Inspection also offers Radon Testing, in addition to general home inspections.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas emitted from uranium, a naturally occurring mineral in rocks and soil. Normally, radon rises up through the soil and dissipates in the air outside. Radon becomes a concern, however, when it seeps through openings such as cracks, loose fitting pipes, sump pits, dirt floors, slab joints or block walls and accumulates in the home.

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. Officials at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment have recently ranked all 64 counties in Colorado at a high risk for radon.
