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

Thank you for your interest in testing with the Evict Radon National Study

The Evict Radon National Study is a national research study involving researchers and scientific partners from across Canada who are 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 our at-cost, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our national, public university-based research study, you are helping researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.

Common practice stated 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. 

Understanding Your Radon Test Results

Your Report Will Indicate Your Radon Levels.

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.

How to interpret your results

How do I interpret my results?

If you do not understand or wish for clarification about your reading, please contact us at [email protected] 

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.

Do I need to retest later on? 

Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP) certified professionals recommend 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.
