PropertECO - Radon Test Specialists

Radon is a naturally occuring radioactive gas that comes from the ground and can enter properties. Long term exposure to high levels of radon can lead to lung cancer, and it is responsible for over 2000 lung cancer deaths in the UK every year.

Radon Testing

The only way to know if a building is affected is to carry out a radon test using a special detector. propertECO can supply inexpensive radon detectors for home and workplace use that are analysed at an independent laboratory. This level of radon testing is vitally important to the health and wellbeing of all individuals who occupy the property as it can highlight potentially dangerous levels of this harmful gas enabling further action to then be taken to reduce the risks.

With radon increasing risks of lung cancer, with higher concentrations and longer exposure leading to greater risks, our test kits are essential. Our radon test kits are suitable for both homes and commercial settings, so purchase today to ensure your exposure to this odourless, tasteless and radioactive gas which stems from the natural decay of uranium is minimised.

UK Radon Map

The Radon Map of UK

The radon map of the UK highlights the areas of the country where it has been predicted that high radon levels are most likely to be found. You can download a copy of the UK Radon Map from the Health Protection Agency website(now part of Public Health England) by clicking the map to the left.

This resource is based on estimates and data extrapolation, so we recommend that the best course of action is to use a radon detector kit to carry out an accurate assessment of radon levels in the air within your home or workplace.




Small Detector

Passive Radon Detectors

We supply packs of 3-month detectors and 10-day screening detectors, which are useful if you are buying or selling a property.

For a standard house, a kit of two detectors will be required so that one detector can be placed in a ground floor living room and one in a first floor bedroom, continually testing for radon. To find out more about our radon test kits, click here or to order online click here.


Digital Monitor

Digital Radon Monitors

propertECO are official UK distributors of the Canary Digital Radon Monitor, a battery-operated constant read radon monitor that gives you both long term and short term measurements of radon levels. For more information on this digital radon monitor, click here.

Exclusively available from propertECO in the UK and Ireland, the Victoria radon testing alarms measure real-time radon levels and warn occupants when radon exceeds a given level. The Victoria Radon Alarm is primarily used for workplace health and safety risk assessments. More information can be found here .




Radon in the Workplace

Detector

Employers are required to carry out radon risk assessments as part of their duty towards staff health and safety. You can find out more about radon in the workplace by reading our Guide for Employers

Radon Test Results

If high levels of radon are detected, we can design and install specialist air management and radon sump systems to lower the concentration and prevent future infiltration of the gas. With over 20 years of experience in the field of radon mitigation, our radon sumps and mitigation systems are designed on an individual basis depending on the size and layout of the property and the level of radon present.
