RADON TESTING MAY - AUGUST?: 6 MONTH RADON TEST ENCOURAGED  

Thank you for your interest in testing with Evict Radon

Evict Radon is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to solving Canada’s significant and worsening radon-gas exposure problem. Radon is a substantial cause of lung cancer even in non-smokers. By testing your home with one of our non-profit, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our national, public university-based research study, you are helping Evict Radon-aligned researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.

Common practice states that winter is the optimal time to radon test. However, as we collect more data, we have determined little difference between winter and spring radon testing. We do, however, encourage our participants to test over seasonal change. At this time, the best and most accurate radon readings obtained during the spring and summer months are those that are longer than 6 months. 

Why test with Evict Radon?

An advantage to testing with a research project like Evict Radon is that the scientists perform hundreds of controls to ensure your radon reading is “gold standard”. These include:

  • Blanks, un-exposed tests put through the entire process to ensure precision and accuracy
  • Duplicates
  • Spiked positives, tests we send to the lab to ensure that devices are precise

In addition to ensuring your radon test result is as accurate as possible, your data will be used for the betterment of Canadian Health and society to further research into cancer prevention. 

Everything we do and say has been approved by the Conjoint Health Research Ethics Board, which ensures that there are no conflicts of interest, that your data is held securely and safely, and that the risks of participation are both minimized and fully disclosed.
