One thing that sets High Country Home Inspections apart from the rest, is that we offer a state of the art radon test. Why does this matter? Radon is an odorless, colorless, and radioactive gas that forms through the natural breaking down of uranium in soil, water and rocks. The gas escapes from the ground through cracks and other holes in your home's foundation. Your home then traps the gas and with time, it builds up in plenty and can have adverse effects on those breathing it in. Radon gas is said to decay into radioactive particles that can get trapped in the lungs leading to lung tissue damage and potential lung cancer.
With that being said, Colorado is known as Zone 1 when it comes to the presence of high radon gas levels. Nearly 73% (that is 3 out of every 4 homes) of all homes in Colorado have high levels of the gas. Although this is a serious matter, there is no need for worry or concern with our highly accurate state of the art technology. Our system has 20 times higher sensitivity than competitive detectors along with a highly accurate reading.
In addition to the accuracy of our testing, you no longer have to wait DAYS or sometimes even weeks before getting your results. Thanks to our exclusive technology, typical time for the first reliable data display is under 1 hour.
