Do you know what radon is? Radon is a gaseous, radioactive element that Friedrich Ernst Dorn discovered in 1899. It is odorless and colorless but can be inhaled and ingested via groundwater. Radon exposure causes many forms of cancer and other illnesses. Still, many property owners don’t think it’s a problem that they have to worry about. In actuality, several studies have found elevated radon levels in an average of 1 in 5 homes. Therefore, it stands to reason that you have your Northern Colorado home or business tested regularly.

Radon is a cancer-causing gas, coming from the radioactive decay of uranium and radium and naturally exists in rocks like granite. It is the #1 cause of lung cancer in non-smokers in the United States. When inhaled, radioactive radon particles cause damage to lung tissue and DNA of cells.
Nearly 73% (that's 1 out of 3 homes) in Colorado have high levels of radon, due to Colorado's large amount of granite. Similar to carbon monoxide, it is tasteless, colorless, and odorless.
Radon Testing is the only way to know if your home is at risk. Testing is easy and inexpensive and fixing levels is as easy as installing mitigation. Lion Home Service utilizes a simple, but accurate test to ensure your home is safe.
