New Builds – the importance of measuring for radon in soil

When radon is being discussed, it frequently revolves around levels of radon in soil. This is not surprising. Radon leaking or being sucked from the soil is the cause of elevated indoor radon levels in most of affected properties. However, it is important to note that radon content in the soil where the building is located, does not necessarily determine…

Seasonal workers are crucial to Radonova’s operations  

Radon measurement is largely seasonal, with May being the peak. But even from October, there are many days when thousands of detectors are sent to customers and then returned for analysis. To cope with the peaks across the year, seasonal staff play a pivotal role in Radonova's ongoing operations. We had a chat with 25-year-old Melker Lindberg who is now finishing his first season at Radonova.   What made you look for a job as a seasonal worker at Radonova?…

The importance of returning radon detectors correctly 

At Radonova, high quality control standards and procedures are integral to our business. Therefore, it’s important to emphasise the significance of returning radon detectors in an appropriate manner to enable us to conduct precise measurements. To avoid inaccurate analysis values, “alpha-track” detectors such as Radtrak2, Rapidos and Duotrak, should generally not be returned in sealed bags. If the measurement time is less than 14 days, returning detectors in sealed bags comprimises industry standards.  There is a good reason for this. Radon is adsorbed into the plastic bag which covers the detector, which can provide elevated values of up to 10-20%, if the measurement time has been too short. The longer the detector is in a sealed bag, the higher the deviation. This…

Radonova update in regards to COVID-19

Radonova has taken a number of measures to ensure procedures carry on as normal during the COVID-19 pandemic. We, like other organizations, are affected by the seriousness of the situation but will continue to conduct measurements and deliveries without interruption. Our customer support is open as usual and accessible to those who have radon-related questions.  In order to minimize the spread of infection, a large number of our employees currently work from home. Employees working in our laboratory who provide services which cannot be performed from home are completely focused on reducing the risk of exposure and spread of the virus. This means that detectors can still be returned to Radonova and analyzed. In all cases,…
