Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States after smoking. It is responsible for approximately 500 lung cancer deaths annually in Colorado.  

Below are Colorado-specific radon resources for school and daycare administrators, real estate agents and healthcare professionals.  

Free Radon Test Kit

Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can negatively impact your home’s indoor air quality and your health. You can’t see or smell radon. Radon can build up inside your home to dangerous levels. Exposure to high levels of radon can cause lung cancer. The only way to know if your home has high levels of radon is to test. Testing is easy and free.

Schools and Daycare

Colorado statute requires all schools to test for radon and to maintain records of the test results for disclosure on request. 

The statute doesn’t require schools to mitigate, so it’s up to the school district and its constituents to address mitigation issues.
