Radon Measurement and Mitigation
Long-term exposure to high levels of radon can be dangerous to your health.
What Is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. It’s produced when uranium, thorium, and radium break down in soil, rock, and water. It’s then released into the air. Radon is odourless, tasteless, and invisible
Radon can accumulate in some places where ventilation is inadequate, such as in an underground mine. It can also build up inside buildings.
Long-term exposure to high levels of radon can be dangerous to your health. Continue reading to learn where you’re likely to find high levels of radon, how to test for it, and how it can impact your health.
How do you measure Radon?
All homes have some level of radon. The question is, how much?
Testing is easy and inexpensive. Radon levels in a home fluctuate which is why it is important to test over a longer period of time to receive the most accurate results. We’ve partnered with The Lung Association, Saskatchewan to perform testing and analysis across Canada by providing long-term radon test kits called alpha track detectors which are approved by Health Canada.
What Is Radon Mitigation?
Radon mitigation is the process in which we install a system to bring the radon gas levels below the recommended limit. These systems prevent radon from getting into the house, keeping you and your family safe.
