There’s a lot to love about Northern Colorado! But there’s something that every Coloradoan should know: Colorado’s soil contains a higher level of radioactive gas called Radon. Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer in Larimer and Weld county. Radon is an invisible, tasteless, odorless and naturally occurring gas. It sneaks its way into your home through openings in your foundation.
We are able to measure it precisely within 48 hours and determine if the gas is within the exposure guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US Surgeon General. ProCheck can assure you that your home in Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Timnath or Wellington, CO meets these standards, and offer a licensed, certified radon report to negotiate your home’s health and safety standards.
We use Sun Nuclear Continuous Radon monitors that are calibrated every year for quality per law, US EPA verified, NRPP listed approved devices, approved by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) for use in real estate transaction testing.
Procheck’s Radon Measurement Professionals are STATE LICENSED as well as certified by 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. Verify these credentials at https://dpo.colorado.gov
Colorado State Licensure is required for Radon Professionals starting in 2022. “The prevalence of Colorado homes with excessive levels of radon has created a market in which unqualified individuals are representing themselves and practicing as radon professionals. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, causing approximately 20,000 deaths a year in the United States, including 500 deaths in Colorado. Therefore, to protect the public, it is necessary to establish minimum qualifications for radon professionals and to require professionals who possess such qualifications to acquire a license before performing radon measurement or radon mitigation.” – Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (aka DORA) per Colorado House Bill 21-1195
