Inspection & Testing
Signature Environmental is now offering same-day results for radon testing. With our continuous electronic monitors, we can provide our clients with quicker results with higher accuracy than charcoal canisters. Our monitors utilize six susceptible sensors that produce reliable data and less variation; the temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity are all incorporated into our reports.
The Benefits of Using Electronic Continuous Monitors vs. Charcoal Canisters
Charcoal canisters will only give an average of the radon levels they are exposed to during the 48 hour sampling period; our electronic continuous monitors provide interval reporting every 30 minutes.
Charcoal canisters are left out and easily tampered with; our electronic continuous monitors can detect fluctuations that may indicate potential tampering (movement of the unit, windows opening, etc.).
Charcoal canisters can take up to several days following the completion of the sampling for results to return from the lab; our electronic continuous monitors allow us to give our clients the results within a few hours after collecting the samples!
The Testing Process
IMPORTANT: The testing of radon levels in your home requires a minimum of 48 hours to complete the sampling using our electronic continuous monitors. If there is a time constraint, such as a pending real-estate transaction, we ask that you please kind this in mind when scheduling.
PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR RADON TESTING
Radon levels can fluctuate inside the home on a daily, and even seasonal, basis. Furthermore, your daily activities such as turning on ceiling fans and opening doors and windows can also affect the levels.
