Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas generated by the decay of minerals present in many rocks and soils.
It is present virtually everywhere, but usually only in very low concentrations.
Whilst harmless when able to escape to the atmosphere, radon can pose chronic health risks to your building’s occupants when allowed to accumulate.
In some circumstances, radon can accumulate inside buildings particularly in natural low points. For example, basements and stairwells.
This can present serious chronic human health risks and is known to cause some types of cancers.
As radon is colourless and odourless, you need specialist equipment to identify any radon hazards present in your buildings. That’s where GGS can help!
