Radon Testing In The UK

10 Day Radon Test Kit

The only way to know if a building is in a radon affected area is to carry out a radon test using a special detector and radon test kit. PropertECO can supply inexpensive radon level 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.

How to Test For Radon

Check out our short video which shows you how easy it is to carry out a radon test.

So you have recognised the dangers posed by radon gas and you know how important testing is but how does radon testing work? You simply order a testing kit online or calling a radon expert.

Once you purchased a kit then these will be sent over to containing two radon detectors and instructions. You should place the one detector in the living room and one in the bedroom.

Leave the detectors in the property for either for 10 days or 3 months, depending on which one you have purchased, then return them to PropertECO.

Once returned, the results will be analysed in a laboratory and within 10 days you will receive an email report containing the results and any advice as to whether any remediation works will need to be carried out.

Can You Buy A Free Radon Test Kit?

Radon test kits are not sold free of charge. In the past, some companies have given away radon detectors for free but this no longer occurs. However, at PropertECO, you can purchase both 10 day or 3 month test kits on our Radon Shop, with a 15% discount using the code “SAVE15“.

Workplace Radon Testing

Under health and safety legislation, a radon risk assessment should be carried out for every workplace. This risk assessment should include radon testing if the workplace premises are located in an 'affected area' or if the building has a basement. More information about employers' responsibilities to manage radon in the workplace can be found in our Guide for Employers.The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) website also gives details on the legal duties employers have regarding employees' exposure to radon.

Interpreting Radon Test Results

If high levels of radon are detected, propertECO can design and install specialist positive pressure ventilation and radon sump systems to lower the concentration and prevent future infiltration of the gas.

UK Radon Map

UK Radon Map

 

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 read more about the UK Radon Map by clicking on the map to the left and a detailed version can be downloaded from the Public Health England (PHE) website.

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.
