So you tested and got your test results back...what, exactly, do they mean?
According to Health Canada, any level of radon in your home over 200 Bq/m3 requires action.
BUT, the US Environmental Protection Agency recommends action over 150 Bq/m3,
The World Health Organization recommends action over 100 Bq/m3.
The fact is, no level of radon is safe. But, only you can decide what level you are comfortable with for you and your family. And, there are significant steps you can take to reduce the amount of your home through mitigation.
The simplest way is to call us! We will send out a certified measurement professional to properly set up your tester. The tester will remain in place for a minimum of 90 days to a maximum of one year and then be submitted to an independent testing laboratory for analysis. There are shorter term tests available if you are feeling anxious or in a hurry. Also, you can do the testing yourself. Be careful to follow the instructions for placement so that you get the most accurate results.
