We are often asked ''What is deemed as safe levels of radon in our home or a house we are purchasing / selling?''
Current advice from Public Health England (Now the UK Health Security Agency) is that “for levels below 100 Bq/m3, your individual risk remains relatively low and not a cause for concern. However, the risk increases as the radon level increases.”
The Government advise that remedial action should be taken in any residential property with an average annual radon level of 200 Bq/m3 or more. This is referred to as the Action Level.
The result is given in a unit called becquerels and expressed as becquerels per cubic metre of air (Bq/m3).
Elevated levels of radon can be resolved with mitigation works to reduce levels of radon gas.
