If you need a Denver radon test you have a couple of ways to go about it. You can buy a simple radon test kit from certain stores and maybe hardware stores in your area. You also can get radon test kits online and some states give them out free radon test kits in certain areas.
If you live in a area known for radon gas i would suggest a radon testing service. You can find radon testing services in phone book or on internet. Some will use a radon detector i would also have radon test kits to make sure results are correct.
If you live in area not known for radon gas go with the cheap Denver radon test and do it yourself. They have mutiple test kits some as low as $5 and up to $45 per test kit. Place one near sump pump and one in other corner of basement. I would not put any radon test near furnace or clothes dryer as results might be incorrect.
A Denver radon test for do it yourself is cheap and simple. Takes from 3 to 14 days and depends on radon test kit. You then send radon test to lab and they mail results back. If levels are high hire a radon testing service to check results and tell you best method to deal with radon gas.
If no radon problems are known to be in your area use cheap radon test. If you live in area with known radon gas problems hire radon test service. I would radon test home with cheap test kit and if i see high levels of radon hire radon test services.
You can do it either way but i preffer cheap radon test before i pay more money for radon test services.
