Do short term detectors give an accurate reflection of radon levels?
It’s best to keep a note of the external weather conditions when the detectors are placed in the property. If there is a lot of rain then the results can be higher, if the weather is dryer then the results can be lower. 3-month testing helps to give a better average result.
All short term detectors from any supplier do not fall under the scope of PHE validation, as PHE only recommends 3-month tests.
Commercial customers, please note: The results from a short-term radon test cannot be used for a radon risk assessment in a commercial environment.
