Radon Information & Links

RADON FACTS
 

  • Radon is a tasteless, odorless and invisible radioactive gas resulting from decaying uranium.

  • Radon is linked to 16% of lung cancer deaths in Canada.

  • Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.

  • Radon rises up from the ground and into buildings through openings (cracks in floor, utility penetrations, floor to wall gaps, slab defects, etc) where the structure contacts the ground.

  • During heating season, the heat leaving your building causes it to become negative pressure compared to the soil below, which encourages more radon to enter. This is known as "Stack Effect". For this reason, testing for radon is recommended to be done during November through April when possible.

  • Any building that has contact with the ground has the potential to have high radon levels, including houses, apartments, schools, day cares, child care centers, and commercial spaces. All buildings should be tested for radon to ensure that the occupants can breathe safer air.
