CONCERNED ABOUT RADON IN YOUR HOME?
According to The Canadian Lung Association, Radon is the second leading cause of LUNG CANCER in Canada
Radon decays quickly giving off tiny radioactive particles. When inhaled these radioactive particles can damage the cells that line the lung. Long-term exposure to higher levels of Radon puts you at a higher risk for lung cancer. Smokers are even at a higher risk.
By simply testing radon levels in your home or work, you can identify whether or not you, family members or colleagues are being exposed to dangerous levels of Radon. Once identified, proper precautions can be put in place to ensure you and those you care about are living and working in a safe and healthy environment.
Northern Capital Radon Services is certified by the "Canadian - National Radon Proficiency Program" (C-NRPP) as Radon Measurement and Mitigation Professionals and is also a member of the "Canadian Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists" (CARST).
Health Canada Recommends long-term radon testing to determine if radon concentrations exceeds the Health Canada Guildline level of 200 Bq/m3. A text duration of at least 3 months is recommended, and 12 months is optimal.
If the result of the long-term measurement is greater than 200 Bq/m3, then Health Canada recommends remedial action to be undertaken.
The amount of radon that enters a building can be reduced by decreasing the flow of soil gas throught the foundation.
