The presence of radon in any given house will remain unknown until the air inside the house is tested for radon. The short term test will take a few days, while the long term test takes at least 90 days. Health Canada and the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (CNRPP) will only recognize a long-term test when deciding on measures to take for mitigation purposes. The Canadian guideline is 200 becquerels per cubic meter (Bq/m³). Any long term test that shows a reading higher than 200 Bq/m³ signifies that the occupants are at a high risk of developing lung cancer. Immediate action is required to mitigate/reduce the concentration of radon gas. Call us to get tested right away! Don’t wait!
