Radon Detector Placement
The purpose of the radon detector placement is to detect the levels of radon within the lowest liveable area. This would include any rooms adjacent to concrete slabs and/or crawl spaces of the home. Depending on the style of the home it is possible for a home to require additional radon detectors (e.g. Back-Split, Crawl space).
When radon testing public buildings such as schools, commercial business or industrial institutions Algoma Radon Testing adheres to Health Canada's recommendations for the placement and location of radon detectors. This requires radon detectors to be deployed in all enclosed areas such as offices and rooms where a person may spend four or more hours.
More detailed information about detector placement and location is included with purchase of radon detectors.
