Radon Monitoring

Here are the options we can provide you to help determine radon concentrations:

· Short-Term Detectors (2-7 days)

· Long-Term Detectors (1-12 months)

 

 

Since Radon concentrations vary over time, the Long-Term Detectors provide a more accurate reading of radon levels in your home or building.

 

​Radon is a radoactive gas that forms naturally when Uranium decomposes in water, soil, and rock. Radon is an odourless, colourless gas that slowly releases from the ground, water and certain building materials. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, behind only smoking.

 

Health Canada recommends remedial action be taken if the annual radon concentration in your home or building is greater than 200 Becquerels per cubic metre (200 Bq/m³).

Early detection is the key to preventing most terminal diseases. In many situations, people only find out about there contamination and  disease in very late stages as symptoms manifest. However by that time their condition is un treatable, leaving them in devestation.

 

Fortunately now we have the technology and expertise to detect the threat before the situation gets to a late stage.

 

Call us to find out more about how you can protect your organization and or home against radon contamination.

 

As technological advances are made, its becoming easier for us to  detect radon in most cases and it's relatively easy to lower indoor radon concentrations. Certified Canadian Invironmental professionals can help identify how radon is entering the building, seal cracks and install specialized venting or any other necessary action to guard against the threat. This can costs between $500 and $3,000. for residential  home owners.

Indoor radon levels can vary wildly from day to day or even hour to hour, as well as seasonally. Concentrations are generally higher in winter and at night, when windows and doors are closed. Health Canada recommends running a radon test over a minimum of three months, during fall or winter. The average concentration detected over a three-month test can be used to determine if a home's radon concentration exceeds the Canadian guideline level of 200 becquerels per cubic metre.

Lung Cancer

You can't see, smell or taste it, so it's easy to ignore. But radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, responsible for 16 per cent of lung cancer deaths in Canada. According to the BC Lung Association, a person exposed to high levels of radon has a one in 20 lifetime chance of developing lung cancer. Smokers face increased risks, with a one in three lifetime chance of developing lung cancer if they're also exposed to high radon levels.

As was the case in 2007 to 2009,Note 4 blood lead levels were higher among:

 

People with lower household incomes compared to those with the highest household incomes;

People born outside Canada compared to those born in Canada;

People who live in homes that are more than 50 years old compared to those that live in homes that are less than 20 years old; and

People who are current smokers or drink alcohol once or more a week compared to those that never smoke or drink alcohol less than once per week.
