Statistics show there are between 1100 and 2000 lung cancer deaths each year that are caused by radon gas.
The action level endorsed by Public Health England (PHE) is 200 becquerels per cubic metre (Bq-m³), the target level is 100 Bq-m³. PHE recommends that radon levels are to be reduced to the target level or lower.
To determine the radon gas levels in your home, two small detectors are placed. One in the master bedroom and one in the living room for a three month period (or at least 90 days). If you have a large house or extensions, additional radon detectors may be necessary.
