How Testing Works
We use the Sun Nuclear Continuous Radon Monitor models 1027, 1028 and 1029. These monitors provide hourly readings and can detection tampering if it occurs during testing. They are calibrated annually, have battery back-up, and provide an overall average as well as an EPA average. By using continuous radon monitors, only one testing period is required to accurately determine the levels of radon that exist in your home.
Testing Is Easy!
After scheduling an appointment, we will place one of our monitors in the appropriate space in your home. Once the test has begun, a 48-hour period is required for it to remain undisturbed. We will then return to pick the monitor up and our client will receive their test results within 24 hours.
How To Prepare Your Home For Testing
Your home should be under “closed house conditions” for 12 hours prior & during testing: All windows and doors must be kept closed. Heating and air conditioning should operate normally. Dryers, range hoods, and bathroom fans may be operated normally but not continuously. Attic, whole house, and window fans should not be operated. Fire place and wood stoves should not be used. If there is a mitigation system installed, it must operate continuously for at least 24 hours prior to and during the testing period.
