Before 1986, RDS was known as MINCO, and provided radon testing for mines and uranium exploration during the 1960s and 1970s. In the mid 80s, after elevated levels of radon gas were discovered in private residential homes, MINCO began to offer private radon testing and changed its name to Radon Detection Systems (RDS).
At the time, RDS was the only company providing residential and commercial radon testing. In 1986, we began providing our nation-wide radon inspection services to the corporate relocation industry. IBM, right here in Boulder, was our first corporate relocation client. There were a limited number of trained field specialists across the country that could perform a full radon inspection. RDS developed an in-depth training program to educate field specialists and still utilizes the training today.
Since that time, we have expanded our menu of services to include mold testing, mold remediation, lead testing, asbestos testing, and radon mitigation installations.
We are a WBE and are family-owned-and-operated. RDS is a Colorado-based company. We have one office, located in Broomfield, CO. We are not a franchise or an out of state contractor. With our knowledge of Colorado’s geology we can provide our clients with peace of mind in knowing their environment is a healthy one.
