Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in North America causing an estimated 3,000 deaths a year. Radon is a naturally-emitted radioactive gas that can seep through cracks in foundations, around drains, sump pumps and exposed soil.
Elevated levels of radon were found in 20% of Homes tested in Ontario and can accumulate to dangerous levels in residential homes. The good news is excessive radon levels can be successfully mitigated in every type of home.
In 2012 Health Canada released a report showing that 6.9 per cent of Canadians are living in homes with radon levels above the current Canadian guidelines of 200 becquerels per cubic metre (Bq/m3). Despite existing test results in your neighbourhood, radon levels can vary from house to house. Health Canada recommends that all Canadians test their homes.
As this type of testing requires a very specific knowledge of testing protocols and procedures, in order to provide the most professional and accurate services, PresiZHen Property Inspections refers Clients to an established and certified partner company: “Radon Find“.
