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].

Canada Post return shipping instructions 

The radon test device is durable and can be placed as is, into the box it arrived in or in a padded or Tyvek envelope. Please take the box or envelope and these instructions to your local post office. Securely tape closed and mail to the North American test collection hub. Sadly, at this time, we do not have a hub in Canada, so it must be sent to:

RadoNova Inc.
900 Oakmont Lane, Suite 207
Westmont, IL, 60559

USA Customs info:
Country of origin: USA
Reason: Return for analysis

Sending it as “small packet” will cost about $10 without tracking. The device is too large to be sent as “letter mail” and may be destroyed in the postal sorting machine. Make sure you send the device to the lab within 7 days of ending the test or the results may come back invalid. Please keep a record of the device number (number on the bottom of device) as well as your start and end dates until you receive your results. The results will be emailed directly to you once analysis is complete. This may take between 4 – 6 weeks.

Where does my test go from there?

From the North American collection hub, all tests are logged and then shipped en masse in batches to the global laboratory which is based in Uppsala, Sweden, EU. Shipping in bulk like this saves energy, cost and ensures the fastest turnaround time.

COVID-19 Update: Due to the recent pandemic there have been recorded interruptions with Canada Post. You are welcome to send you device back at this time. However, it is extremely important that you record accurate start and end dates on the registration website. It may also take longer for you to get your results. 

It’s been over 6 weeks and I haven’t gotten my report? At this time, this is normal. Double check your email spam folder for a report from the lab in Sweden: Radonova. If you haven’t received anything, please email [email protected] and we will do our best to track down your results.
