Here's important information you should know about your radon test with St. Louis Radon Test and Mitigation. Please take a few seconds...
Across the scientific and medical community, it's widely accepted that the potential presence of a radioactive substance like Radon in your home (and the health hazards it can create) is something that should be taken seriously. And we do. That's why we take the time to get the details right and work with you to make sure we're always giving you the best, most accurate radon testing services you can find anywhere.
We only use the latest in computerized electronic radon-detection monitor technology that enables us to perform a precise sampling of any radon in your home over a continuous 48-hour period. Samples are recorded once each hour during the test, and the detected level of radon is stored to the monitor's memory. When the test is complete and the device is picked up, we download that data and send you a comprehensive report so you can see all hourly data points in both list and graphic formats, as well as the calculated overall average of radon and important EPA average of any radon level detected.
In the event that the level of Radon detected in your home exceeds the Action Level recommended by the EPA, we're ready to answer your questions and work with you to provide effective and professional Radon mitigation systems to eliminate the threat from your home.
"Closed-House Conditions" The majority of the time we spend in our homes throughout the year is under what is called "closed-house conditions". That means that other than normal entrance and exiting, the doors and windows of your home are shut off to incoming outside air. To get an accurate reading of the amount of radon that could be in your home during these periods, it's important that these closed-house conditions be replicated prior to and during the 48-hour radon test. This assures that an accurate, normal-situation radon level can be measured. Please make sure that all doors, windows and/or any vents to the outside remain closed for at least 12 hours before the test is scheduled to be placed, and that they remain closed during the test period. Normal entrance and exit to and from the house is OK.
Testing equipment will usually be picked up on the second business day following placement. As a rule, tests placed on Monday will be picked up on Wednesday, Tuesday to Thursday, Wednesday to Friday, Thursday to Saturday and Friday to Monday. In some cases if a test has been initially placed late in the day or a delayed start has to be programmed into the monitor, pickup of the unit may fall to the third day after placement.
Please select a convenient day and time for your test and we'll do our very best to match your request. If the day or time you want is not available, we'll be in touch within 24 hours with other options. Requests for next business-day service must be submitted no later than 2:00 PM Monday thru Friday.
