Radon....what is it?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas formed from the decay of Uranium, a common element found in the soil, rock and groundwater under and around Canadian homes.  
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer death in Canada, according to Health Canada.  

Once released from the soil, radon mixes with the air that we breathe. It congregates in confined spaces, like basements.  

Radon is colourless, tasteless and has no smell which makes it impossible to detect without testing for it.

Any home can have radon. It can enter the home regardless of how new or how well-built the home is.  
But don't panic ~ Any home that tests with high levels can be fixed by stopping the inflow of radon gas and exhausting it to the outdoors. Fixing a home with radon is called mitigation.
