If you do not have install any kind of redon mitigation system in your home or at your work place and you want to install radon mitigation system. Then the most suitable way to do that is to conduct the test for radon. This test will clear you that how much quantity of radon is present and what kind of system will be efficient you’re your desire place. There are various types of radon test and each test has its own credibility. The variation is the price allows clients to choose the best suited test for themselves. Radon testing near me There are mainly two types of redon testing systems; DIY radon test, Electret radon test
DIY redon test
This test can be conducted with the help of kit and overall price of this test is $20 to $50. This DIY kit is either alpha track or charcoal. Charcoal tests absorb the radon in the air for a specified amount of time, and once in the lab, the radioactive particles emitted by the charcoal are counted or converted to light, giving a radon level readout. Alpha track tests use a plastic film that is etched by the alpha particles that strike it. In the lab, the tracks are counted, giving the radon level.
Instructions to perform this test are:
The process of conducting this test is to close all the windows and doors of the place for 12 to 14 hours.
Place the DIY test kit in the reachable lowest place for accurate readings. Leave the test for 3-4 days to get the accurate results.
After that time period, deliver your test kit to out lab where we will conduct test on the kit and we will tell you the results.
Electret radon test
Electronic radon testing is the best option for the most accurate results and in real estate situations. Electronic radon testing is performed by us as we are trained and certified. There are two types of tests exclusively available through certified professionals, include the passive electret test, and active tests. The electret test uses a Teflon disc which is statically charged. When an ion generated from radon decay strikes the disc, the electrical charge is reduced, and that reduction is measured in the lab. Active tests are the only ones that require electrical power. They use a continuous monitoring device to detect and record your radon levels the entire duration of the test.
This test costs $120 to $250. Active tests are more expensive than passive.
Radon is effectively reduced through radon mitigation system. The outdoor level averages 0.4 pCi/L and the average home has a concentration of 1.25 pCi/L. While anything under 2.0 pCi/L is preferable, reducing your level from 4.0 pCi/L or higher to below 2.0 pCi/L is extremely difficult. Radon mitigation systems use a motorized fan and PVC piping to draw the radon from the rocks and soil beneath your home and vent it out at the top where it safely disperses.
