IES Consulting Group, a long-standing member of the Canadian Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (CARST), provides professional Radon testing services to Leamington, Ontario and beyond. Our years of experience have allowed us to provide accurate and thorough Radon testing services. To ensure we provide proficient Radon testing services, our expert Leamington Radon testers maintain certification through the Canadian Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP).
Explaining Radon Gas
Radon is a highly toxic radioactive gas that releases slowly from the water, ground, and some building materials. Radon poses a hazard as it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada. The only way to determine Radon concentrations within your Leamington location is by professional testing, which is important to measure the level of risk.
Why Radon Testing Remains Crucial
Accurate Radon testing is required in order to measure the risk level of your Leamington building and we offer two testing options that can provide you with precise measurements of Radon concentration levels. Our Radon testing choices include Short-Term Detectors (2-7 days); and Long-Term Detectors (1-12 months). With Radon levels often fluctuating, Long-Term Detectors are the ideal choice for a more precise reading of the Radon levels found in your Leamington building, as Short-Term Radon testing is most often performed when fast results are required, such as the closing of a real estate deal. The Health Canada recommendation is that action be taken when annual Radon concentration levels within your building exceed 200 Becquerels per cubic metre (200 Bq/m³).
