There’s a lot to love about Northern Colorado! But there’s something that every Coloradoan should know: Colorado’s soil contains a radioactive gas called Radon. Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer in Larimer and Weld county. Radon is invisible, tasteless, odorless and naturally occurring gas. And it sneaks its way into your home through openings in your foundation.
But ProCheck has the means to measure it precisely, and suggest ways to mitigate it if found to be at dangerous levels. We will be able to determine if the gas is within the exposure guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Surgeon General, measured in picocuries per Liter (pCi/L). ProCheck can assure you that your home in the Front Range from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Longmont, Colorado (including the cities of: Ault, Bellvue, Berthoud, Dacono, Drake, Evans, Firestone, Fort Collins, Frederick, Greeley, Johnstown, Kersey, Loveland, LaPorte, Livermore, Mead, Milliken, Nunn, Pierce, Red Feather Lakes, Severance, Timnath, Wellington and Windsor) meets these standards, and offer a certified report which adds value and reassures potential buyers if your home goes on the market.
The best part is that you don’t have to be in the dark. We set up the equipment to take readings in a quick and unintrusive visit. Over the course of 48 hours the readings will fluctuate based on a number of factors, but the composite of these readings give us a Radon profile of your home. It’s easy to pick up the phone and schedule an inspection that can save the lives of you and your loved ones. ProCheck Inspection Services are at hand to answer your questions and offer help 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
We use Sun Nuclear Continuous Radon monitors that are calibrated every year for quality. The model 1028XP continuous radon monitor is US EPA verified, NEHA-NRPP listed and evaluated and approved by the NRSB for use in real estate transaction testing.
Procheck’s Certified Radon Measurement Professionals maintains their licenses every year through the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) & The National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP). Not all inspectors carry the same level of qualification in Colorado. Be sure that your inspector and their results are authoritatively certified.
