Radon Inspections

I don’t live in an area with any known high Radon levels, should I still complete a Radon test?

Even homes in areas considered at low risk for radon could have high radon levels. Although there have been no “absolutely safe levels of radon” determined; by following Health Canada’s guideline of 200 Bq/m³ or 5.4 pCi/L, the EPA recommendation of 148 Bq/m³ or 4 pCi/L or the World Health Organization’s recommended level of 100 Bq/m³ or 2.7 pCi/L, you will be helping to protect yourself and your family. The only way to know whether or not you need to fix your home is to complete a test for radon. Health Canada recommends long term testing methods.
