Radon is a colourless, odourless and tasteless radioactive gas. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada.

Testers will be available to purchase and there will also be draws for free test kits! Light snacks and refreshments provided.
Radon is formed by the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Radon that escapes from the ground and enters an enclosed space, such as a home or office, can sometimes accumulate to high levels.
The only way to determine whether your home or office has a high radon level is to test.
Contact SRC Environmental Analytical Laboratories to purchase your cost-effective radon test kit for indoor air. The kit includes a long-term test (30-90 days) using an alpha track detector.
