Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas. It is formed by the radioactive decay of the small amounts of uranium that occur naturally in the rocks and soils of the United Kingdom.
Radon sensors count alpha particle emissions. It is best to leave the detectors in site for as long as possible and ideally 3 months. PHE offer affordable sensor kits which are the best value for measuring Radon.
Once you know the Radon levels in your property we can advise on mitigation strategies including extract sumps and positive pressure ventilation.
