dangers of radon from ground cracks

Health and prevention of illness are important for most people today. As more threatening substances and gases are studied people look to prevent illness. One gas is radon gas, radioactive gas that is in many parts of the United States and around the world.

Radon cannot be smelt or seen and it can cause lung cancer. It makes sense so that people are concerned about it, but how do they detect it if it is invisible?

Calling in experts in radon detection seems like an obvious answer. This takes time and can be a costly exercise. Having a device to detect Radon makes more sense.

Considerations

When looking for a Radon Detector there are important considerations to bear in mind. One needs to consider the accuracy of Radon detection. You can find out by reading various reviews and of course by visiting the manufacturer’s website.

The second consideration is the ease of use and ease of reading the information gathered. With this, the reports are very clear and sent to your mobile phone.

The speed of the results is also important. We live in a switched-on world that demands fast, accurate information. The claims made that this is fast when in use has proven to be true.

The reliability of the detector and any warranties play a major role in choosing a detector, as does the cost. This brand is an affordable device with good warranties and guarantees.

Using the device

This device requires all doors and windows in the room to close to ensure accurate results. The device is easy to use and should be on a flat surface in the room and left alone. The device works automatically and little or no set up required.

One major advantage is the speed in which it gathers information. Most other detectors need between 24 and 72 hours to provide the most basic of information. This one requires 90 minutes to provide an accurate report.

Another benefit is that it has a safety alarm that sounds when 4 pCi/L or higher levels of Radon are detected. You can also track current results from the device via the App.

Within the App, you can run a handful of helpful results using information up to 12 months old. You can change between accepted units of measure from around the world enabling users to better understand. The reports and graphs are all easy to read and understand.
