More About Radon

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas formed from the decay of Uranium, a common element found in the soil, rock, and groundwater under and around Canadian homes and businesses.  There is some level of radon in every building, and high levels can be a risk to you in your home and your workplace. Long term exposure to high radon levels can cause lung cancer. It is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking,

Radon...is it in your home or workplace ?

Radon...what is the health impact ?

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in Canada, according to Health Canada and the Lung Association & Canadian Cancer Society.  Once released from the soil, radon mixes with the air that we breathe. It congregates in confined spaces, like basements.  
Radon is colourless, tasteless and has no smell which makes it impossible to detect without testing for it. Testing can be done with a simple do it yourself test kit.

The only way to discover your radon levels is to conduct a simple do-it-yourself test.  ​This map shows potential levels of radon in Canada. Health Canada recommends testing your home for radon, and taking action when the levels are over 200 bq/m3. High radon levels have been discovered in areas where the overall average is low which is why it is important to test for radon and not make assumptions.
