Radon Mitigation & Testing FAQs


Is radon common in Colorado Springs?

Radon is common in Colorado Springs. Nearly 7 out of 10 homes in Colorado have radon levels that exceed the EPA recommended action level of 4 picocuries (pCi)[link to def below] of radon per liter of air. Radon is common in the entire state of Colorado but even more so right here in Colorado Springs and El Paso County. According to EPA Estimates, Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, only surpassed by smoking.

How much does radon mitigation cost in Colorado?

A professionally installed radon mitigation system in Colorado usually costs about $800-$1,200 unless any complications or design problems occur during installation. We highly recommend reaching out to a profession for the installation as you may encounter having to install your own sub-slab depressurization system. Any missight or error could result in radon not being properly mitigated.
