Radon Testing and Mitigation in Peel Region - Including Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon
Mitigating radon in your home is essential to reduce the health risks associated with long-term exposure to this radioactive gas. Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that can seep into buildings from the ground, especially in areas with high levels of radon in the soil.
If you are concerned about radon levels in your home, Canada Radon services are available in the Peel Region - including Mississauga, Brampton, and Caledon.
Testing Your Home For Radon
The first step in mitigating radon is to test your home for its presence. Radon testing kits are readily available from Canada Radon, and they are relatively simple to use. Short-term tests take just a few days, while long-term tests provide a more accurate picture over several months. Place the testing kit in the lowest livable level of your home, such as the basement or ground floor, for the most accurate results. If the test indicates elevated radon levels, it's time to consider mitigation.
