The primary causes of indoor air quality problems in homes are indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles. Such sources include radon, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold, dust mites, and pet dander. When there's not enough fresh outdoor air let into the home, the level of indoor pollutants can increase. This can contribute to or worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. Some pollutants at high levels, including radon, can contribute to cancer and other serious health conditions. Don't ignore potential radon or indoor air quality issues in your home.

Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium found in soils, rock, and water. El Paso County is in "Zone 1" with a potential for high radon levels (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency). Radon can seep through the soil, into the air, and through cracks and openings in home foundations, walls, and floors that are in contact with the ground. The only way to know if your home has a radon problem is with testing. There are several methods to test for radon. At Rocky Mtn Radon & Environmental, we typically use a continuous radon monitor to measure radon levels for 48 hours.
