*Note: Mid America Radon Testing Inc. is a certified and experienced radon testing and mitigation company (serving the Midwest since 1987). We are fully-certified by AARST-NRPP (American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists and National Radon Proficiency Program) for radon testing and mitigation.
Ensuring quality over test results is important and our lab provides the highest integrity of analysis for testing.
We are a certified AC primary laboratory and offer services to environmental companies with 24 hr. turn around (once we have retrieved the radon devices or detectors).
The reporting we provide clients regarding radon testing results are delivered in high industry standards and have full validity for inclusion in documentation for real estate transactions.
We have multiple ways to test for radon, as follows:
One method we use is the Activated Charcoal (AC) passive testing device(s) that measures levels of radon concentrations in the air. During the test, radon gas diffuses passively into the device. After the testing period is completed (min. 48hrs), we collect the testing devices and deliver them to the lab for analysis. These devices are inexpensive and appropriate for testing residential and commercial buildings.
Another method is the Continuous Monitor Radon device (CRM) an active testing device, will provide a printout displaying hourly readings and calculate the average.
An additional method, the Alpha Track Radon device (AT) is a passive testing device and is used for long term testing.
Our Procedure for Performing Radon Tests is as follows:
To ensure a valid test reading, certain procedures must be followed carefully by the home occupant (or their representative). Failure to maintain the integrity of the testing environment may result in invalid test results.
- See our Testing Guide - checklist of procedures for occupants here.
We look forward to helping you ensure that your home and family are free of dangers from radon.
