Rapid measurement in houses

from 39

In Ireland radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas which can accumulate inside buildings, including your home, which can cause lung cancer. The risk varies depending on where you live, the local underlying rocks and regional geology.

Using our Radtrak²® detectors enables you to obtain a reliable assessment of the radon levels in your home. The detectors are specifically designed to measure the yearly average radon level that has been adjusted for the season, which takes into account closed or open windows.

Radon measurements in Irish homes are normally carried out with two Radtrak²® detectors (one in the master bedroom and one in the living room), over three months, to average out short-term radon fluctuations.

Procedure

Rapidos® detectors are normally supplied in pairs however be certain to order an additional Rapidos® detector for any rooms where you spend a lot of time e.g. in the children’s bedrooms.

Place the Rapidos® detectors according to the simple instructions that accompany the package. At the same time, log in to www.radonova.ie and go to My Pages.  Enter your details, start date and where you have located your detectors. Alternatively, you may send us this information on paper but be sure to include it in the return envelope supplied.

Please leave the Rapidos® detectors in the same place for a period of 10 days or more before you return the detectors to our laboratory. On the same day, you log back into your account in My Pages and enter when you finished the measurement. We use the start and finish dates to accurately measure the radon level. Alternatively, request a paper report from us.

When we receive the exposed Rapidos® detectors from you we analyse them putting the results as an online report into your account which you can then print as a hard copy as part of your buying or selling process. Analyze report will be ready 1-2 weeks after the detectors have been received by the laboratory.

Where radon is detected perform a longer term more accurate assessment using Radtrak²® detectors, over a three month period, to confirm initial findings.
