You always begin by performing accredited long-term measurement over a minimum period of 2 months. If the results indicate elevated radon levels, proceed to Step 2.
A radon consultant with documented radon expertise will perform an inspection to determine the source of the radon and then suggest measures to reduce radon levels.
Remediation must now be performed. In order to receive a radon grant, applications must normally be accompanied by an invoice for measures that have been taken to reduce radon levels in the home.
Within one year of the measures being implemented, follow-up long-term measurement must be performed to verify that the measures have worked. The follow-up report must be submitted to the relevant authority to supplement the application for a radon grant, for the grant to be paid out.
In order to ensure that radon decontamination and implemented measures are having the intended effect, homeowners should continue to monitor radon levels. This can be done using a digital radon detector that enables variations in radon levels to be monitored over time.
You now live in a radon-free environment, and the radon grant (if available) will be paid out if you have followed the specified actions. Home radon levels should be monitored by means of long-term measurement every five years, or after any major renovation work. This helps to ensure that the measures are still working.
