The only way to find out whether a dwelling has a high level of radon is by having a test done. Testing costs around £50 and involves the placing of small detectors in your home for a period of 3 months, in order to get an accurate result. We recommend that people who are living in an Affected Area should have their homes tested to find out what the level of radon is.
What can I do to reduce the radon level in my home?
Various remedial measures exist. It is important to choose a method that is likely to work in the individual circumstances. The method to select will depend on several factors, including
- The construction of the dwelling
- The level of radon present
- The desired `target level’ of radon
