Radon Testing

Radon is an invisible, radioactive gas created from natural deposits of uranium and radium in the soil, and is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. It is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year and about $2 billion in medical expenses and lost productivity. (1)

Data collected by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment indicates that approximately 50% of homes in Colorado have radon levels higher than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-recommended action level of 4 picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L).  In Colorado, the average indoor radon level is about 6.4 pCi/L. Living in a home with average levels of radon in Colorado for 1 year is like having more than 200 chest x-rays every year. (2)

  • Arapahoe County 55%
  • Boulder County 50%

BaseCamp Radon Testing

state of the art Tamper resistant technology

We utilize continuous radon monitors that not only record accurate, hourly radon readings, but also hourly environmental conditions such as relative humidity and temperature during the radon test, as well as movement of the unit.  This allows our radon professionals to more readily identify tampering or other conditions that might invalidate the test results.  We inform the current occupants of the conditions required for an accurate radon test, and alert them of the anti-tamper protections and recording mechanisms.  This increases the likelihood that the current occupant will maintain closed house conditions for the duration of the test, and allows for our tests to be more likely to be accurate.
