For short-term tests, the house should be closed up for 12 hours before the test begins and throughout the test.
Our short term Radon Gas test is done with a CRM (Continuous Radon Monitor).
It needs to be deployed for at least 2 to 7 days and should be done in the winter/fall (the accuracy will decrease if windows and doors are open.
Placement of the test is simple - anywhere out of reach, typically in your basement.
The results will be displayed in 10 minutes with an instant test.
The results will be displayed in 24 hours on a short term test.
If the Radon Gas levels are borderline in your home after our short term testing, we typically suggest a long term test be completed in order to be sure that Radon Mitigation is necessary.
Long term testing (91 days) should be completed during September to April, as this is the time of year when there is less air circulating through your home.
