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. 

It’s so much more than a test.

By testing with Evict Radon and ordering one of our quality controlled radon devices, you are joining a cohort of Canadians who are helping to put an end to Canada’s worsening radon problem. Each Evict Radon participant fills out a home metric survey, which, at the end of the testing period, is paired with the radon reading of your home. The results* from this survey and the home radon measurement are then shared with our team of Canadian scientists to help solve Canada’s radon problem. 

*No personal data is ever shared. Only the home metric survey, the radon measurement and the first 3 digits of your postal code.
