How to Prepare for a Professional Radon Test with Pro Lab

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can be found in homes, schools, and businesses. It is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, making it difficult to detect without specialized testing. Pro Lab is a leading provider of professional radon testing services. Here are some tips on how to prepare for a professional radon test with Pro Lab.

Clear the Area:

Before the test begins, it is important to clear the area of any furniture or other items that may interfere with the test. This includes any items that may be blocking vents or air intakes. The area should also be well-ventilated to ensure accurate results. Additionally, all windows and doors should be closed during the test period to prevent outside air from entering the space.

Check for Leaks:

It is important to check for any leaks in the walls or floors before beginning the test. This can be done by using a moisture meter or other device to detect moisture in the walls or floors. If there are any leaks present, they should be repaired before proceeding with the test. This will help ensure accurate results and prevent further damage from occurring due to water infiltration.

Test Conditions:

Pro Lab recommends that all tests be conducted under ideal conditions in order to get accurate results. This includes maintaining a consistent temperature of 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity levels between 30-50%. Additionally, all fans and air conditioning units should be turned off during the testing period in order to prevent outside air from entering the space and affecting the results.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your professional radon test with Pro Lab will provide you with accurate results and peace of mind knowing your home or business is safe from this potentially dangerous gas.
