By studying the Health Protection Agency map it is possible to identify the affected areas within the UK that have potentially high concentrations of radon gas. There is a common misconception that Radon Gas only affects the South West of the country, the radon map, however, highlights that the problem is much more widespread than previously believed.
The Government recommendations are that a property with a yearly average Radon level of 200 Becquerel per cubic meter is at risk. If the level of radon has reached this amount then action to reduce it should be seriously considered, especially if the owner of the property is a smoker or an ex smoker. The average concentration of radon in homes within the UK is 20 Becquerel per cubic meter. Levels below 100 Becquerel per cubic meter remain low and a not a real cause for concern, however, the risk of exposure increases as the radon increases. Radon measurements can be carried out with two detectors both in the bedroom and the living room which lasts over three months.
