October 31, 2018 - Radon Environmental Management Corp has partnered with The Lung Association – Ontario to provide a fast, efficient, and accurate way to find out if your home, school or workplace has potentially hazardous indoor radon levels - the leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.
Radon is a colourless, odourless gas that is produced from the natural breakdown of uranium in rocks and soil. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking and can seep into a building through drains, pipes, and cracks and crevices in the foundation.
“The air you breathe, regardless of where you live, work, or socialize, is important to your health. The Lung Association is committed to protecting your breathing and that’s why we’re excited about this new partnership and being able to offer a variety of radon test kits for the public.” says George Habib, CEO of The Lung Association - Ontario.
"Testing for radon is simple, convenient and inexpensive," says Habib. “With these do-it-yourself kits, it’s easy to follow the instructions included and test your home. Everyone should be testing their home for radon, especially during the winter months.”
"If it turns out your radon levels exceed the recommended guideline of 200 becquerels/m3, we advise installation of an active radon reduction system by a certified radon mitigation professional."
