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].

With your home radon result, we are able to:

  • Better protect Canadians from the harmful effects of radon gas exposure
  • Understand why certain properties have higher or lower radon compared to others
  • Work towards solutions that mean lower radon for everyone
  • Determine what behaviours modify our radon exposure
  • Determine the best pathway forward for best radon testing in Canada

Our current and past Evict Radon research participants have contributed to new ground-breaking research exposing Western Canada’s radon problem. Their contribution is helping us accomplish our mission to ‘evict’ radon from our homes and prevent future cases of radon-induced lung cancer.

The research has been published in the Nature Publishing Group’s multidisciplinary journal Scientific Reports. Titled “Radon exposure is rising steadily within the modern North American residential environment, and is increasingly uniform across seasons”.
