“Very impressed with Colin and Pat at Radon Controls! Very easy to schedule an estimate and Colin arrived right when he said he would. Both Pat and Colin’s communication with me was excellent and I knew exactly what mitigation work needed to be done. Colin finished the work very quickly and even left my basement cleaner than when he arrived! Can’t recommend this company enough!” - Johnny K.
Radon gas can enter a home through the ground to the air above and into your house through cracks in foundation walls and in floor slabs, construction joints, gaps around service pipes, support posts, window casements, floor drains, sumps or cavities inside walls. Testing for radon is affordable and accurate. Health Canada recommends that all homes, schools and workplaces be tested to determine if there are elevated radon levels. It also recommends a 3-month test during the heating season for the most accurate results. The test is called a passive test and uses no electricity. Call Radon Controls Inc. in Alberta to book professional radon testing or let us help you learn more about your testing options.
It is easy and inexpensive to do.
Testing can be completed by the homeowner, or a C-NRPP certified professional from Radon Controls can do it for you.
A 3-12 month test is recommended to ensure a long term average is determined.
As radon levels can fluctuate significantly from day to day, basing a decision to mitigate on a short-term test can lead to false positives and false negatives. However, there are times when a short-term test is appropriate, such as a real estate transaction.
For schools, daycares and commercial properties, the protocols are different and we suggest hiring a radon measurement professional for these situations.
At Radon Controls, we understand the importance of quality assurance and quality control. We:
Follow all of the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program protocols for duplicates, blanks and spikes.
Buy our test kits from a reputable lab and store them in a radon reduced environment so there is no risk of contamination.
Will assist you with test placement either over the phone or via Facetime if you are unsure.
There are times when it is preferred to have a third party, such as Radon Controls Inc., handle the testing, such as for a real estate transaction.
Short term testing with a C-NRPP approved digital radon monitor with enhanced reporting and recommendations for time-sensitive situations.
