Radon Mitigation

We are experts in Radon Mitigation

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 enters British properties from underground and is worst in high risk areas.
  • Radon emits radiation as it decays and can only be identified using Radon testing equipment.
  • Radon is recognised as the biggest cause of lung cancer after smoking.

Radon Testing

 

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.

 

Radon Mitigation

 

Once you know the Radon levels in your property we can advise on mitigation strategies including extract sumps and positive pressure ventilation.
