Radon is a radioactive gas, we can’t see, smell or taste it: you need special equipment to detect it. It comes from the rocks and soil found everywhere in the UK. The radon level in the air we breathe outside is very low but can be higher inside buildings.
The only way to know if a building has a high radon level is to have it tested. If you live or work in a radon affected area we recommend that a test is arranged.
There are different ways to find the Radon Potential for an address and if your property falls within a higher or lower risk area of land in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Radon is everywhere but some parts of the country are more likely to have high levels in buildings than others for example Cornwall. Geoinvestigate can provide a Radon Report for your property or development.
