Would highly recommend PropertEco, the team were very professional and the results amazing, we've gone from seeing radons levels to as high as 1000 to now under 50 for the last six months we have had this equipment installed.

Our pre-mitigation Radon levels were relatively low; only just enough to warrant mitigation. Charles came to the property and spent a great deal of time back and forth, even looking at plans for future work I had for the property, to ensure we were going for the right location. Rob and his team turned up when they said they would, were professional and very neat. The site was clearer when they left than when they arrived.The results were excellent, a drop to 20% of what they were pre-mitigation and now well below levels that would give any cause for concern. We are very happy with all aspects of the service and would recommend PropertEco without hesitation.

I have already left a review of Charles and his installation team's excellent workmanship and commitment to the control of Radon.Having had the work completed and just got the 3 month after test results back, I would like to share that the installation Charles recommended has reduced our radon levels from over 300bq m3 to less than 10mbq m3.I can't give a better reccomendation to his knowledge and expertise than those results.Thank you again guys

I expected a technical report for results, not a marketing document trying to sell additional services and items. Having sold me the 10 day testing I would not expect a results document that included statements explaining how useless the 10 day tests are.

I was very impressed with the levels of service. We are selling our property and the buyers were concerned about Radon in the area. The 10 test kits came quickly and were easy to use. I had anticipated that the results would be delayed as we were close to Christmas but they came back in 9 days! Would recommend them to anyone that needs this type of service.
