What Is Radon?

Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas. It is formed by the radioactive decay of the small amounts of uranium that occur naturally in all rocks and soils.

 

Why is it a risk to our health?

Radioactive elements decay and emit radiation. Any exposure to this type of radiation is a risk to health - radiation is a form of energy and can cause damage in living tissues increasing the risk of cancer.

 

Where is radon found?

Radon is everywhere; formed from the uranium in all rocks and soils. Outdoors everywhere and indoors in many areas the radon levels are low and the risk to health is small. The darker the colour on the radon maps, the greater the chance of a high radon level in a building. However not all buildings, even in the darkest areas, have high levels.

How to Test for Radon Gas

You can purchase Radon Detections Kits on the Internet for around £20 or contact Dynamic Property Care UK for a Free Radon Check.

Radon Test Kits

As radon gas is invisible and odourless the only way to find out if a property has significantly high levels of radon gas is through performing thorough diagnostics over a 3 month period – this then allows for fluctuations according to seasonal temperatures. Passive radon detectors are placed within the main living and sleeping areas of the property for testing. These detectors are then sent for laboratory analysis to obtain a yearly average Becquerel level. Remedial action is then dependant on the accurate results obtained. Radon Testing kits are available via our radon shop.

 

Reducing Radon Levels

Once high concentrations of radon have been identified, the next step is to implement mechanical measures to help lower the radon levels within the property. This can be accomplished through the installation of a Radon Assisted Sump System, specifically designed to decrease levels of radon. This is generally the most effective method, and in many cases can reduce the radon level to less than one-tenth of the original level. Alternatively, Dynamic can provide homeowners with an EnergySaver Positive Pressure System.

The system is simple to install and effective in bringing fresh, dry filtered air continuously into the property diluting and displacing radon contaminated air.
