Please call for pricing on public buildings.

Your home is not only an investment it’s your family’s sanctuary for which you should feel safe.

On average Canadians spend 18 hours per day in their homes and perhaps even more as more of us work from home during these challenging times.

Reducing the quantity of air borne particulates in your home by changing the forced air filter regularly is an easy task a home owner can do to help maintain better air quality.

Radon however cannot be filtered but is still quite easy to mitigate but action is only required if levels in the home exceed 200 Bq/m3. Health Canada therefore recommends that every homeowner test their home for radon to determine if mitigation is necessary.

Home Science Inspection Services offers
Radon Measurement and Analysis for
residential and public building.

What is Radon?

Radon is a tasteless, odourless and invisible radioactive gas that results from decaying uranium, and is a leading cause of lung cancer.

Radon filters up from the ground and into the air. It can enter buildings through openings where the buildings contact the ground. In the outdoors, radon is diluted to low levels. Inside buildings, however, radon can build up to harmful, concentrated levels. Breathing increased levels of radon increases a person’s chance of developing lung cancer. In fact, Radon is linked to 16% of lung cancer deaths. It is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.

LARGE SQUARE SIZEContinuous Monitoring

LARGE SQUARE SIZEElectret Ion Chamber


Home Science Inspection Services performs short or long term tests.

A short term test (48 hours) is recommended to determine quickly if there is a need for a long term test and to provide a general idea of the Radon levels in the home.

A long term test (90 day) is recommended as follow up to the short term test and is required to determine if mitigation is necessary.

We utilize both continuous monitoring and Electret ion chamber devices to measure the conditions in the home.

Complete radon assessments of larger (multi-floor, multi-wing) public buildings can also be completed. Cost will depend on scope of work therefore please inquire for a quote either by email or phone.
