Mr Radon specializes in radon mitigation, but we offer certified tests of homes and for the economically minded we offer a competitively priced mail out radon testing service, for the DIY market without the hassle of having to go get your radon test.
Elevated and high levels of radon exist all over Canada. You cannot smell, taste, see, or feel radon. The only way to know if you have high levels of radon is to conduct a radon test. Radon is easy to test for and typically a one day job for us to fix high levels.
Health Canada says that radon kills 3,200 Canadians a year.
For your convenience we have included the radon potential map below. Please do not interpret the guarded or elevated areas as areas in which you do not need to test for radon. Our two highest radon tests (14,800 Bq/m³ and 9,250 Bq/m³ respectively) were in homes located in the Zone two and Zone three areas- those marked as “Elevated” and “Guarded” on the map below.
