Have you measured your Radon concentrations in your home? Radon is the most important cause of lung cancer after smoking. If you levels are to high it is easy to fix.

Clean air is extremely important in modern buildings for comfortable feeling. Natural ventilation is limited due to modern materials and method of construction. The construction of modern houses tends to low operating, construction costs, architectural ideals ... and often forget about the quality of the living environment.

When buying a property, we allow buyers to measure radon in buildings. Individuals who are aware of the harmful effects of increased radon concentration, usually with some repairs of buildings improve air quality in their living and business premises.

It is therefore important that air quality is constantly monitored. We can control what we can measure:

  • air temperature in the room
  • moisture in the room
  • presence of gases, smoke, carbon monoxide, radon
  • humidity control and mold on the walls
  • external influence or emissions

The digital mean radon concentration meter measures radon concentration in accommodation spaces.

Radon measurements in the living and working environment allow us to evaluate the value of radon and the impact of radon on health -  cause lung cancer.

 

In Slovenia, the highest concentrations of radon were measured in the western and southern part of the country, where carbonate rocks dominate, the Notranjsko - kraška part.

 

Radon enters the house through cracks in the floorboard and walls, through the pipes. The reason for the entry of radon into buildings is a slight decrease in pressure inside, which is a consequence of warmer air in buildings, especially in winter. In addition, during the cold period, ventilation of rooms is also reduced. Consequently, winter concentrations of radon are 2-3 times higher than average in summer.

 

In particular, it is necessary to emphasize the energy repair of existing buildings, which generally have a poorer sealing of the floorboard and in which the poor sealing of the windows and envelopes of the house ensured the continuous ventilation of the rooms. When new windows and new insulation wrap are installed in such a building, radon concentration in the building can be increased several times. The newest passive houses should, as a rule, have adequately sealed floor panels, which in combination with the central ventilation system will provide safety against elevated concentrations of radon. Despite all the preventive measures taken, however, for any building we can not say with certainty that it is safe from the radon until it is confirmed by measurements. Even the values ​​measured in adjacent buildings are usually very different.
