Radon Reduction - Existing properties

Making Your Home a Healthier Place to Live:
Evidence from Public Health England shows a clear link between lung cancer and high concentrations of radon.

What is the Action Level?
Public Health England recommends that radon levels should be reduced in homes where the average is more than 200 becquerels per metre cubed (200 Bq m-3). This recommendation has been endorsed by the Government.

What is the Target Level?
The Target Level of 100 Bq m-3 is the ideal outcome for remediation works in existing buildings and protective measures in new buildings. If the result of a radon assessment is between the Target and Action Levels, action to reduce the level should be seriously considered, especially if there is a smoker or ex-smoker in the home.

For the last 20 years, experts at the Health Protection Agency (now Public Health England) have warned that work should be carried out in affected buildings to lower the levels.

Design & Installation:
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.

How to Reduce Radon Levels:
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.

Radon Mitigation – We Can Reduce Radon in Your Home:
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.
