Radon Measurement Services
NJ DEP Certification MET13186
Effective December 3, 2022, the NJ DEP’s Radon Division is adopting new laws for Radon Measurement Technicians that conduct tests to determine the level of radon in the air. The protocols for conducting the measurement of radon in the air follow the standards for measurement set forth by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) in their manual, Protocol for Conducting Measurements of Radon and Radon Decay Products in Schools and Large Buildings.
Frank J. Delle Donne of Regal Home Inspections, LLC is certified by the NJ DEP to conduct radon measurements in Single Family Homes (A separate AARST protocol than the one noted above) and for Large Buildings and Schools; Preschools, childcare centers, early learning centers. He’s ready to conduct your, important radon measurements.
Why is this important? First, it’s the law. Additionally, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and there are some links between radon and pediatric leukemia. Radon is predicted to cause over 21000 lung cancer deaths per year.
New Jersey law, Title 30 Section 30:5B-5.2 addresses Radon testing in childcare centers. It requires that the, “…owner of any building in which a child care center…is located shall test or cause to be tested the space in the building in which the childcare center is located for the presence of radon gas and radon progeny. The test shall be conducted at least once every five years”
For a free evaluation of your facility and a free quote to conduct the measurements (Following the AARST protocols) please call. The evaluation of your facility will require a walk-through of the building including any levels below such as basements.
In Monmouth County, for example, there are a number of townships and/or boroughs classified by the NJ DEP as being, “High Radon Potential” areas. These include Little Silver, Shrewsbury Borough, Holmdel, Marlboro, Freehold and Colts Neck for instance. It’s the law that all daycare centers be tested and should not be delayed, particularly in high radon areas.

It’s a good idea to have your home tested for radon as well.
