Choose an Expert to Test Your Home for Radon

This is not a process that a homeowner can do on their own – it takes a fully trained technician to conduct the test and make the proper recommendations for how to reduce radon to safe levels.

ClimateCare is the largest network of certified radon detection and mitigation experts in Canada, with a team that’s been trained and certified through the National Environmental Health Association’s National Radon Proficiency Program. This is the only governing body recognized by Health Canada.

What is Radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas found naturally in the environment. It is produced by the decay of uranium found in soil, rock or water.

If you’re concerned about radon levels in your home and want to determine if there is a risk, radon testing from ClimateCare can help ensure the safety of your home.

Why Would Radon Be in My Home?

Radon is invisible, odourless and tasteless and emits ionizing radiation. As a gas, radon can move freely through the soil, enabling it to escape into the atmosphere or seep into buildings. When radon escapes from bedrock into outdoor air, it is diluted to such low concentrations that it poses a negligible threat to health. However, if a building is built over bedrock or soil that contains uranium, radon gas can be released into the building through cracks in foundation walls or, floors, or gaps around pipes and cables.

When radon is confined to enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces, it can accumulate to high levels. Radon levels are generally highest in basements and crawl spaces because these areas are nearest to the source and are usually poorly ventilated.
