Radon is a colourless, odourless and tasteless radioactive gas. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada.
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.
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.
Radon levels can vary dramatically even between similar homes located next to each other. The amount of radon in a home will depend on many factors such as soil characteristics, construction type, foundation, occupant lifestyle and weather.
The only way to determine whether your home or office has a high radon level is to test for it.
SRC's Environmental Analytical Laboratories provides residential radon testing kits and analysis for homeowners anywhere in the world. The testing is inexpensive and easy-to-use.
We are an independent laboratory accredited by the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation (CALA) and the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program.
