Radon Testing and Mitigation
What is Radon?
Radon is a colourless odorless radioactive gas produced in some soils by the decay of uranium.
Radon is estimated by *Health Canada to be the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.
Why do I need Radon Testing and Mitigation?
Radon can enter a basement through concrete cracks and exposed earth. Radon mitigation can be as simple as sealing cracks in a basementfloor and walls.
Radon testing is simple inexpensive to see if it is present in a basement. Testing the overall household exposure to Radon requires leaving meters there for some time.
