Why Is Radon Gas A Concern?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is highly toxic, slowly releasing from some building materials, water, and even the ground. Radon is colourless, odourless, and tasteless, and has become the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada, which is why Radon testing is a key part in measuring Radon concentrations within your Harrow location.
The Importance Of Radon Testing
It is recommended by Health Canada that action should be taken when the annual Radon concentration levels within your Harrow building reach 200 Becquerels per cubic metre (200 Bq/m³) or above. When it comes to determining Radon levels, we have two testing options available in order to get an accurate measurement of Radon concentration levels. These two Radon testing methods are Long-Term Detectors (1-12 months) and Short-Term Detectors (2-7 days). With Radon concentration levels fluctuating, Long-Term Detectors are the best way to see an accurate reading of Radon levels in your Harrow building. Short term Radon testing is generally the most ideal option in situations where results are required quickly, such as a real estate transaction.
