COVID-19

Please note that radon monitors placed in unoccupied buildings can give false results (both too high and too low). If your workplace is currently unoccupied, due to the current situation with COVID-19 and the government advice regarding homeworking, please consider placing your order when your workplace is running 'normally'. You can call or email us to discuss the arrangements: (01235) 822622 and radon@phe.gov.uk

The best guide to the level of radon in a building is a measurement.
