If you spend more time at home with telework and in the basement, you are more at risk of being exposed to the dangers of radon, a colourless, odourless radioactive gas. Do you really know your environment?
Be sure to measure the radon level in your home and protect your family from exposure to this gas still largely unknown to the general public.
According to Health Canada recommendations, radon concentration should not exceed 200 becquerels per cubic meter (Bq/m3). Otherwise corrective measures are necessary. The WHO recommends not to exceed 100 Bq/m3. In Canada 20% of houses tested exceed the recommended limit of 200 Bq/m3. The more tests there are, the more this percentage tends to increase.
The only way to know if mitigation measures are required is to do a measurement in your home. Call on our certified team now!
