The only way to know if you have a radon issue is to test your home. While nearly every home in Canada has some level of radon only a proper inspection can determine whether they are safe for your family or if you require radon mitigation.
Radon seeps out of the ground and enters your house through cracks and holes in your home’s foundation, even through drains! It collects in enclosed areas like basements and crawl spaces. Radon can build up over time and become a serious problem.
Radon is an invisible, odourless gas that is released from the ground from radium. It can occur anywhere, but higher levels are typically found in areas that have a higher concentration of uranium that naturally occur in the soil.

If you have any concerns that you have a radon issue, book a call now, be safe and not sorry!
