IT'S IN THE AIR, THE GROUNDS AND IN BUILDING MATERIALS
The amount of radon in a dwelling varies by season. These variations are dependent on the outdoor temperature and wind conditions. The amount of radon also varies during the day and night and from room to room depending on how the ventilation system functions and how often the room is aired. It is therefore important to measure the amount of radon over a relatively long period.
A measurement takes three months - and an additional month or so to process and report the results. It is a simple procedure, with monitors issued and returned by normal post. No visit is required.
The individual result in each home is confidential and will not be forwarded to any party without the prior consent of the householder.
A test package includes Radon Detectors with full instructions for their use, subsequent analysis and a report of the result. All packaging and return postage costs are included.
If the test results show that a house has increased Radon values, a thorough inspection should be carried out by a certified Radon Inspector to determine what solutions can be used to lower the levels of radon in the best way possible.
If the test results show that a house has low levels of Radon, we recommend a new test to be done in 5-6 years time to make sure nothing has indeed changed regarding the air quality.
TO ORDER ANYTHING RELATED TO MEASURING AND REDUCING RADON
Order a long or short term measuring package to get your house tested.
Apartment buildings are always assessed prior to testings.
All types of workspaces should be tested to ensure the safety of the employees.
LONG TERM TESTS
To get a full test report a long-term radon testing should be done over a minimum of 60 days. The long-term testings should be done between 1st October - 30th April.
To get an indication of the radon levels, a short-term radon testing can be done over a minimum of ten days. The short-term testings can be done any time of the year.
