Radon – City of Aspen & Pitkin County
According to the EPA, “Any radon exposure has some risk of causing lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family’s risk of lung cancer. The amount of radon in your home’s air is measure in pCi / Liter. The United States Congress has a set a long-term goal that indoor radon levels be no more than outdoor levels” of radon which are approximately 0.4 pCi / Liter. EPA strongly recommends fixing your home if the results are greater than 4 pCi/Liter. The EPA also says you, “may want to consider fixing if the level is between 2 and 4 pCi/L.”
You can order a radon test kit that will not cost much but you get what you pay for meaning that you will only get a yes or no reading and that reading will not tell you the level of radon in your residence. When you are ready to test your commercial property and/or home for radon, then the EPA strongly recommends hiring a qualified radon testing and mitigation company.

EPA : Consumer’s Guide to Radon Reduction: How To Fix Your Home
“Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smoker and the second leading cause of lung cancer for the general population. The Surgeon General and EPA recommend testing for radon and reducing radon in homes that have high levels. Fix your home if your radon level is confirmed to be 4 picocuries per liter, pCi/L, or higher. Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced.”

Why Hire Aspen Based Contractor?
EPA recommends that you have a qualified local radon mitigation contractor fix your home because lowering high radon levels requires specific technical knowledge and special skills.
