Radon is a radioactive gas that has no smell, colour or taste. Radon is produced from the natural radioactive decay of uranium, which is found in all rocks and soils. Radon can also be found in water. Radon escapes from the ground into buildings, where it decays and produces further radioactive particles.

Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well- sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.

One of the things that can greatly effect the amount of radon in a property is earth tremors.  This fragments the rock and soil allowing the radioactive gas to percolate up though the ground entering the property and water systems.

You can see by the chart regions that are of risk.  The Iberian Peninsula Spain and Portugal is 93%.  This is due to a series of faults along the coastline, so if you live in this region there is a high possibility of radon presents in your home and a survey is advisable.

In recent surveys undertaken 3 out of 5 properties tested proved positive for Radon Gas.  So book a survey today, click on for our survey page
