Why Radon Detection Specialists For School Testing?

Testing your school for radon can be done any time during the school year or over the summer months, if HVAC systems are running normally. All testing devices are chemical-free and non-intrusive in the classroom. In order to properly test a school for radon, testing devices must be placed in every classroom, every office, and every general-purpose or common space (i.e. library or multi-purpose rooms). From start to finish, the testing and reporting process takes about a week.
