What is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in soil and rock. It is invisible, odourless and tasteless. In enclosed spaces, like homes, it can accumulate to high levels and become a risk to the health of you and your family. Every home in Canada has some level of radon; the question is how much. A radon test kit is the most accurate way to find out if you have a dangerous level.
