Radon mitigation in Colorado Springs Colorado is any method for reducing radon concentrations in the breathing areas of occupied buildings. Since high radon levels have been found in every part of Colorado, including Colorado Springs; testing for radon and the installation of radon mitigation systems has become a very technical industry in recent years. Many states including Colorado offer programs that have affected the Colorado Springs real estate community, but mandatory radon testing and radon mitigation systems are not normally in place. According to the Colorado Springs Colorado health department, the primary radon mitigation method involves the use of a pipe system and fan, which draws radon out from under the house, venting it outdoors. Indoor radon mitigation can usually be accomplished by what is called "sub-slab depressurization", venting it away from building openings and windows. Soil suction is a type of Colorado Springs Colorado radon mitigation that keeps radon from coming into the home by drawing it from beneath the home, and exhausting it through a pipe to the air above the structure where it is rapidly diffused. The EPA does not recommend sealing alone as a radon mitigation technique because it has not been found to significantly reduce radon levels consistently in Colorado Springs Colorado homes. The risk of radon exposure in modern Colorado Springs Colorado homes is often increased by the construction of energy efficient structures. They tend to make the house airtight without allowing radon to vent or be diffused naturally. If your Colorado Springs Colorado home has been found to require radon mitigation, there are professional radon mitigation contractors available in most areas of Colorado. Some states require them to have a radon mitigation state license, while others do not. Even though many states do not require a state license to perform radon mitigation, it is recommended that you use a properly-trained Colorado Springs Colorado radon mitigation professional. The National Environmental Health Association gives a test to allow Colorado Springs Colorado radon mitigation experts to demonstrate their competency. It is a voluntary test called the National Radon Proficiency Program. Another Colorado Springs Colorado radon mitigation method is above-slab technology. It requires that the home is extremely airtight. A small fan then extracts the radon in the air from the cavities to be exhausted outdoors. This technology is usually a superior radon mitigation choice for Colorado condominiums because it reduces humidity in humid climates, and can help prevent the growth of mold in walls. A new Colorado Springs Colorado radon mitigation technology utilizes a mechanical ventilation system with a variable rate that helps in preventing indoor humidity from surpassing certain predetermined levels. This helps in preventing the growth of mold in humid climates and controls the rate of air delivery so that air conditioner units are not strained with excess moisture. For radon mitigation in Colorado Springs Colorado crawlspaces; the EPA suggests, "An effective method to reduce radon levels in Colorado Springs crawlspace homes involves covering the earth floor with a high-density plastic sheet. A vent pipe and fan are used to draw the radon from under the sheet and vent it to the Colorado outdoors. This form of soil suction is called sub membrane suction, and when properly applied is the most effective way to reduce radon levels in Colorado Springs Colorado crawlspace homes.” Radon mitigation is accomplished most easily by using the services of Colorado Springs Colorado radon mitigation professionals. They have the necessary training to perform radon mitigation according to EPA and Colorado industry standards. To learn more, call 719-632-5900 or visit
