NOTICE: Radon testing during Spring & Summer (April to August)  

You are interested in obtaining a radon test kit during Spring or Summer period (April to August). The latest Canadian radon research shows that there is no statistically significant difference between long term 90+ day test outcomes performed at different times of year (seasons). However, health authorities still recommend performing most of this test during colder months. We want you to be aware you have three options:

  1. Perform a 180+ (6 month) test, starting now
  2. Wait until mid-September, and perform a 90+ day (3 month) test
  3. Deploy your test for an entire year

The device is only active once you have opened the plastic bag surrounding it. The most important thing is to accurately record the start and end date of the test, via the registration process. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].

What do I do once I receive my results?

The Canadian guideline established by Health Canada for the maximum exposure limit of radon in your home is 200 Bq/m3. Your report will indicate your radon reading under the RADON RESULT column. We’ve included an example report for you to look at. This report will be emailed to you using the email you registered the device with. 

NOTE: If you did not register the device properly, you will not receive your results from the lab. To ensure you did that correctly, visit this section.  

You want the radon level to be under 200Bq/m3. If your results are under the Health Canada maximum exposure limit, you can breathe easy knowing you and your family are not at risk for radon gas. If your levels are above 200Bq/mthen we highly recommend you contact a mitigation professional to lower your risk of radon gas exposure. You can find more information about mitigation here.

Do I need to retest later on? 

Health Canada recommends you retest for radon about every 5 years. However, unless you perform any major home renovation or anything else to change the air dynamics of the home, your radon level should stay the same.
