Our History Fighting Cancer
About RPW Radon Wales Ltd
As Members of The Radon Council (Registration # 05174) we provide radon detection and reduction services across the UK to customers including Schools & Universities through to the general public.
We specialise in radon gas measurements and offer high quality radon gas testing kits for the home and the workplace. More and more research links adverse health effects with exposure to radon gas. With a simple 10-day screening test you can find out if you live in a high radon area.
Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas, produced when uranium decays. Trace quantities of uranium are widely present in rocks and soils from which radon is continually produced. In the ground, radon diffuses to the surface. Outdoors it readily disperses, so very low quantities of radon are found in outdoor air. In houses radon can enter from under the floor where it can accumulate.
The normal concentration of radon in UK houses is lower than in most other European countries. Some houses, however, can harbour appreciable levels which may be a health concern, especially increasing risk of lung cancer.
Radon levels not only differ from place to place but more importantly from house to house, making a radon gas measurement relevant for any home, workplace or school. Take a look at our hot spot map for an idea of how Radon Gas may affect your area.
We offer radon gas testing at competitive prices, both for short-term screening tests and long-term radon gas measurements, resulting in a precise value for the radon level in your home.
Our radon gas tests and services cover:
- 10 Day Radon Testing Kits
- 3 Month Radon Testing Kits
- Radon House Survey and Tests
- Radon House Conveyancing Tests
- Commercial Premises, Private and Public Buildings
- Health and Safety at Work Act Compliance
Radon is now recognised as the second largest cause of lung cancer in the UK after smoking. Lung cancer is also the biggest cause of cancer related death in the UK, and only 5% of all lung cancers are curable.
Employers must review the radon hazard in their premises.
RPW Radon Wales can supply and install Radon testing kits for your business - remember that Radon gas is odourless but can potentially be lethal.
