November is Radon Action Month!

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada, next to smoking. 

Radon is an odourless, colourless, and tasteless naturally occurring gas found in soil, water and rock. Although all buildings contain some radon, high levels of radon in homes can be a health hazard to its occupants. Therefore, awareness about radon and reducing exposure is very important to all home owners. The only way to determine if your home has radon is by testing for it. Testing is simple!
