About Radon in Your Home?
We are recognized as leaders when it comes to Radon as that’s all we do, we are specialists! Testing your home for Radon is very easy and inexpensive with our Radon test kits. Testing your home is recommended by Health Canada and has started becoming standard practice in real estate transactions.
The only way to know for sure if your home has high Radon levels is to get it tested, preferably by a C-NRPP certified professional. The difference between these two types of tests will obviously be time and what your needs are for getting your home tested. According to Health Canada, The Canadian Cancer Society, and the Lung Association, it is recommended to test your home for Radon to ensure safe levels.
We offer a long-term test kits that can be mailed to you or hand delivered and placed in your home for a minimum of 91 days up to a full year. Long-term Radon tests are the best indicators of true Radon levels in your home and are suggested prior to mitigating. (Many people feel comfortable mitigating based on getting a C-NRPP Certified Measurement professional testing their homes Radon levels). Upon conclusion of the test, send your Long term testing device to the lab in your pre-addressed envelope (lab analysis fees are included in the price of your test) and wait for your results!
96-Hour Assessment (Short-Term Radon Testing)
We also offer a short-term Radon assessment where we come to your home and set up a commercial-grade Radon monitor for a duration of 96 hours (min). At the conclusion of the test, we will provide you with a detailed digital report, including an hourly breakdown of Radon levels within your home. Short-term testing is most applicable in real estate transactions; it gives you an accurate reading for that particular window of time. If Radon levels are over the recommended guidelines, you have the option of negotiating a Radon mitigation system cost into the purchase of your home or the potential to negotiate based on follow-up long-term test results. If you are a homeowner looking to find out your home's long term average Radon levels, this test is not recommended.
We offer the Corentium Home, Wave & Wave Plus by Airthings. These digital Radon monitors are both short and long-term testing devices giving you the peace of mind knowing what your preliminary Radon levels are within hours vs. waiting 4 months. Each one is slightly different, giving you the flexibility on how you wish to monitor and which additional features are preferable. The longer these devices are used to measure, the more accurate they become, and as is recommended by Health Canada, the most accurate results will come from a test that lasts a minimum of 90 days within the winter months.
