It’s important to understand the radon testing process before deciding how to fit radon measurement services into your professional offerings. In Canada we recommend conducting a long-term test before making the decision to mitigate. The testing period should be at least 91 days; preferably between the months of October and March since our homes are more closed during the heating season.
Testing is typically done using a passive detector which is opened and sits in place during the testing period. Radon measurement devices can be purchased individually or in bulk from a manufacturer and then returned to that manufacturer for analysis at the end of the testing period. Professionals may also purchase radon measurement devices that can be analyzed in your office. This requires a more significant investment of money and time to set up, but provides you with the flexibility of doing the analysis in the office and reusing the device system.
The C-NRPP approved radon certification courses will provide you with important information on how to choose your devices and conduct testing.
