Rapid measurement in houses

from £78.00

In the UK and Northern Ireland Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas which can accumulate inside buildings, including your home, which can cause lung cancer. The risk varies depending on where you live, the local underlying rocks and regional geology.

When you are buying, selling or renting a property, the new purchaser or tenant may enquire as part of the search process as to whether the property has been tested for radon levels. Homes built before more stringent UK building regulations came into force and those in known radon affected areas are particularly prone to higher radon levels.

Rapidos® rapid radon measurement is practical when you need an indicative result at short notice before a longer term more accurate assessment is made to confirm initial findings. Rapidos® detectors are specially designed for short-term measurement of radon and ideal for the property market.

Radon measurements in UK homes are normally carried out with two Rapidos® detectors (one in the master bedroom and one in the living room), over a minimum period of 10 days.

At the same time, log in to www.radonova.co.uk and go to My Pages.  Enter your details, start date and where you have located your detectors. Alternatively you may send us this information on paper but be sure to include it in the return envelope supplied.

Please leave the Rapidos® detectors in the same place for a period of 10 days or more before you return the detectors to our laboratory. On the same day, you log back in to your account in My Pages and enter when you finished the measurement. We use the start and finish dates to accurately measure the radon level. Alternatively request a paper report from us.

When we receive the exposed Rapidos® detectors from you we analyse them putting the results as an online report into your account which you can then print as a hard copy as part of your buying or selling process. Analyze report will be ready 1-2 weeks after the detectors have been received by the laboratory.

Where radon is detected perform a longer term more accurate assessment using Radtrak²® detectors, over a three month period, to confirm initial findings.
