Having just moved into a Radon affected area, we thought we should get a test kit so I searched online and found Radon Protection and gave them a call. Sarah was so informative, helpful and reassuring, in fact I think her customer service skills should be used as a benchmark for all customer service departments, whatever the industry, up and down the country, she was brilliant! After receiving the kit 2 days later I had a query so I contacted Radon Protection and spoke to Sarah and once again she was most helpful and resolved my query. Thank you Sarah and Radon Protection.

During the process of purchasing our bungalow we were informed that as we are in a Radon area it would be sensible to carry out the necessary checks in order to ascertain if the levels of Radon required attention.

“Radon Protection UK – Very helpful and friendly company”

Very helpful and friendly small company, they went out of the way to help us reduce our radon from a scary level (1500) to a safe level (around 100). It is very hard to find sensible advice on radon and the friendly team at Radon Protection UK have gone out of their way to help us manage this potentially dangerous problem with our house. We had a problem with our first fan after several years and they replaced it the next day for free. Thoroughly grateful and highly recommend them.

Buying a Property in a Radon affected Area.

Introduction: Since 2013, as part of any house sale, local council land searches have included a land search to establish if the property is in a radon affected area. As sellers you will also be asked if you have measured for radon in your home and if you have taken any action as a result. This fact sheet is to help estate agents, solicitors, landlords, homeowners and tenants, house buyers and sellers to overcome any barriers when the radon land search reveals there is radon in your property area. Local authority search Form and Sellers property information form: When buying or selling a property you will come across two forms that may disclose information about radon. These forms are known as CON 29R and TA6. These forms may be the first time a buyer or seller sees any reference to radon gas and this may be worrying. Radon Protection UK has produced this document to help understand what to do when radon becomes a subject of the buying or selling process, and aims to assist buyers and sellers through the stages required to bring the transaction to a successful conclusion. • If your property is in a radon affected area then mitigation works are likely to be required to be carried out. • Finding a solution, should one be required. (Known as radon mitigation / remediation)

Finding a solution: When radon levels are 200 Bq/m3 or above, then you should consider action to reduce your radon levels. There are two ways you can resolve any issues during the sale or purchased of a property. You can undertake remedial action prior to the sale, or consider a radon Retention (sometimes called a radon bond).

Arranging a radon bond (radon retention): If you do not wish to go through the process of remediation work, or time limits the completion of the property sale / purchase, then a radon retention may be a solution. Under this system, the seller and buyer agree on a sum of money that is likely to be enough to cover the cost of a typical radon remediation system should one be required. The money is taken out of the buyer’s purchase price and held by a third party (for example, a solicitor) until any remediation work is completed and a radon test result is known. Both parties sign a contract that stipulates how the bond will work and a period of time for the radon testing and remediation work can be set. Sometimes the money is released before the work is carried out to fund the remediation. Any testing and remediation work is paid for by the retention money. For the bond system to work, it must be fair to both parties. It must reflect reasonable but adequate costs. Radon Protection UK suggests that in most cases a figure of £1800£2500 be retained. This should be enough to cover most scenarios but advice should be taken on a suitable value for individual properties to give exact costs. The bond’s life must also be realistic, allowing – for example – at least four months from completion of house sale to obtain a radon test result. If this result is at or above the Action Level, another three months should be allowed for the completion of remediation work. If testing reveals levels below the action level, then no further action is necessary and the bond money is released back to the seller.

About Radon Protection UK: We aim to reduce radon levels as low as possible in both existing properties and new homes below 200Bq/m3. Once radon levels have been established, we provide a survey of your property prior to any works and provide a detailed quotation for the mitigation works and the cost will depend on the levels, location and property type. Our team have many years of experience implementing these methods in buildings and successfully bringing radon levels down to an acceptable level. A radon retest measurement should be conducted after completion of works to ensure radon levels have been reduced to an acceptable level, which we can also provide.

Radon Awareness Week – 4th – 10th November 2019:

Radon Awareness Week – 4th – 10th November 2019:
Exposure to radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and is responsible for over 1100 deaths in the UK every year. High levels of radon can be found in buildings of any type, size or location with occupants unaware of the potential danger unless a specific test has been carried out.
Research published earlier this year has found that indoor radon levels are increasing due to the changes we are making to our buildings for energy efficiency purposes. This in turn will lead to an increase in the number of lung cancer deaths attributable to radon exposure.

Martin Roberts TV & Radio Property Expert and Ambassador of Radon Awareness Week TV & Radio property expert Martin Roberts is backing the campaign and says “The lack of awareness about radon and its health dangers is shocking – and it’s something that could be in any of our homes”. You can hear more from Martin throughout the campaign, including tips on how to ensure your home is not affected.
During this year’s Radon Awareness Week, we will be working with various partners to focus on what needs to be done to prevent the number of avoidable lung cancer cases from rising.
Radon Awareness Week is running from 4th – 10th November 2019. Join in the discussion online using #radonaware

Family run Business:

Our engineers have many years of experience in designing and installing radon mitigation systems to successfully reduce radon levels to an acceptable concentration. Using Positive Input Ventilation (PIV’s), subfloor positive pressure, extraction systems, membranes and sumps to control levels of radon gas within the home.

The ground is the main source of radon. The aim of our remedial work is to reduce radon levels as much as possible. Radon Protection UK provide several methods that can be used to reduce high radon levels.

Methods to reduce the level of radon in your home vary considerably in their complexity, long-term effectiveness and cost. We strongly recommend that every radon control system is installed by a Radon Protection UK professional. Our engineer will visit your home and carry out a survey and explain all the options available.

Just moved into a Radon affected area?

Having just moved into a Radon affected area, we thought we should get a test kit so I searched online and found Radon Protection and gave them a call.
Sarah was so informative, helpful and reassuring, in fact I think her customer service skills should be used as a benchmark for all customer service departments, whatever the industry, up and down the country, she was brilliant!
After receiving the kit 2 days later I had a query so I contacted Radon Protection and spoke to Sarah and once again she was most helpful and resolved my query.
Thank you Sarah and Radon Protection.

FANTASTIC HELP AND ADVICE …
”We are considering purchasing a new property in a radon gas area. The property has no radon gas protection. I spoke to Sarah who gave me amazing advice with regards to the different scenarios and methods of radon extraction we could consider. She also advised they at a very reasonable cost supply radon gas monitors to test the property for 3 months and then give you the results following receipt of the monitors.
What a great service. I certainly won’t be going anywhere else.”
