What is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs when radium in soil and rock breaks down. It is an invisible, odourless and tasteless gas that can accumulate to unnaturally high and dangerous levels in our homes.
Why should I care?
Every day, another Albertan is diagnosed with radon-induced lung cancer despite never having used tobacco. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, but it is entirely preventable. Knowing your home’s radon level is the first step in determining if you are at risk.
What should I do?
Test your home. The process is simple. Purchase a radon testing device and place in the lowest level of your home for 90+ days, starting between the months of October and January.
