RADON GAS IN KETTERING
Radon is a colourless, odourless, and radioactive gas that can be found in homes and buildings across the United Kingdom. Though it's impossible to see or smell, radon can pose serious health risks if it's present in high levels. That's why it's important to have your home or office tested for radon regularly.
Radon Protection UK Ltd are dedicated to helping keep you and your family safe from the dangers of radon exposure. We offer comprehensive radon testing and mitigation services throughout Kettering. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to accurately test for radon levels in your home or business. And if we find that radon levels are too high, we'll work with you to develop a plan to mitigate the problem and keep you safe.
RADON GAS DETECTION IN KETTERING
Radon gas can seep into homes through cracks in the foundation or other openings. Once inside, it can build up to dangerous levels. The best way to protect your family from radon gas is to use a radon gas tester kit in your home.
There are two main types of radon gas tests: short-term and long-term. Short-term tests take at least 2 days but no longer than 90 days. Long-term tests take more than 90 days. The type of test you use will depend on how long you need the results and how sensitive you want the test to be.
If you're buying a home in Kettering, you may want to have a short-term test done as part of the purchase agreement. This way, you can negotiate with the seller to have the problem fixed before you move in.
If you're concerned about long-term exposure to radon, a long-term test may be a better option. This type of test is more likely to give you an accurate idea of the levels of radon gas in your home.
With either type of test, it's important to follow the instructions carefully and place the test kit in an area of your home that's not exposed to drafts or excessive heat or cold. This will help ensure accurate results.
Once you've collected the sample, seal up the radon testing equipment and send it to Radon Protection UK Ltd. The results will be sent back to you within a few weeks. If the levels of radon gas in your home are high, you'll need to take steps to reduce the exposure. This may involve sealing cracks in your foundation or installing a venting system.
RADON MITIGATION IN KETTERING
Radon Protection UK Ltd specialise in mitigating high levels of radon in homes in Kettering. There are two main types of radon mitigation: active and passive. Active mitigation involves the use of fans and other devices to remove radon from the air. Passive mitigation relies on natural ventilation to circulate air and keep radon levels low.
ACTIVE RADON MITIGATION
Active mitigation involves installing a system that will remove radon from the air in your home and vent it outside. These systems typically use a fan to draw air from the loft or crawl space and exhaust it through a pipe to the outside.
PASSIVE RADON MITIGATION
Passive mitigation involves sealing cracks and openings in your home that allow radon to enter. Whilst this can be done yourself, it is always best to hire a professional to do this work.
Whatever mitigation or remedial work is required, the first step is detecting the presence of radon gas in or around your home. Head over to our shop to purchase your radon gas detection kit.
The cost of radon remediation will always be lower than the cost to your family's health.
