THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW IF YOUR PROPERTY HAS RADON IS TO TEST!

A1 Radon gas testing carry out three type of gas tests. To truly identify the radon levels in any property the only way is to test. We use top of the range digital monitors, 7 to 28 day passive tests and 12-week passive detectors. Each has their own benefits and we offer a solution for all scenarios of radon gas testing.

Radon Digital Monitors are used predominately as a guide reference. Our surveyors also use these tools to identify the best location for mitigation processes.

7-Day Radon Gas Detectors

These are used by A1 Radon for two main reasons:

Firstly, when a house is being sold, to determine if a Radon Bond is necessary within the house sale. At A1 Radon we understand how stressful a house sale can be, so we do all we can to ensure we work with you to test as quickly as possible and advise your conveyancer on Radon Bonds where necessary.

Secondly, we use 10-day detectors following all our annual services of all mitigation equipment installed. It is extremely important to test short-term annually on service to ensure mitigation equipment is working as intended. Many variables can determine the radon levels inside a property and changes to the fabrication such as extensions, window changes, air conditioning installation or walls being removed.

These are the most used and accurate measurement A1 Radon use. These detectors give a true overall picture of the radon gas concentration inside a property. The number of detectors needed to test a property is determined by the size of the dwelling or construction. On a standard house a detector is placed in the lounge and master bedroom, but it is best to contact A1 Radon before ordering to double check if your unsure on how many detectors you will require for you Radon Gas Testing.
A1 Radon carries out all testing and are happy to post out detectors or place ourselves where necessary. For some of our larger clients such as councils and housing associations we place and collect to ensure complete validity.

A1 Radon only use PHE validated laboratories to check the radon levels in detectors once collected or returned.

Once results are returned to A1 Radon we will forward onto our client along with a testing certificate.
Public Health England state that anything measuring over 200 Bq per cubic metre requires mitigation to reduce it to safe levels.
Following certification, we then advise on the next steps such as whether mitigation is necessary or not.
