According to Health Canada, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. In fact, it is responsible for 17% of all lung cancer deaths in Canada each year, exceeding that of asbestos. Our home Inspectors are fully trained professionals, certified by the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (Canadian-NRPP). Mike Holmes Inspections is also a recognized certified C-NRPP lab where we do our own in-house analysis in order that you can receive your results quicker.
The problem with radon is that it is an odourless and invisible gas. The only way to know if a home contains dangerous levels of radon is to test for it. What might surprise you is the fact that one house can have radon levels next to zero while the house next door can have levels that are off the charts.The levels of Radon do tend to fluctuate depending on the weather, humidity, the home’s construction and the time of year. For example, winter is the best time to test for radon because windows and doors tend to be kept shut during most of the season, which allows any toxins in the home to build up. This provides a good reading on indoor air quality and radon levels a household is exposed to.
Homeowners are encouraged to test for radon, book a radon test with one of our home inspectors who are certified by the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP), in order to ensure accurate test results.
