Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas produced by the natural decay of uranium in rocks and soils. It is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, killing approximately 3,200 people a year in Canada.
Radon can become trapped and accumulate in your home and other buildings unless systems are installed to prevent it. The BC Building Code now requires "radon rough-ins" - basic systems that can be upgraded once homes are occupied to ensure radon levels remain under Canada's Radon Guideline.
Our study seeks to learn about how the Code provisions are playing out in practice. As part of this project we are inspecting radon systems in homes. We are looking for homes to assess. If you agree to participate our professional mitigator will visit your home and conduct a visual inspection. We follow strict health and safety protocols. The process will take about one hour. You will receive a report detailing the results of our assessment of your home radon system.
Your name will also be entered into a draw to win an iPad!
We are selecting homes across several areas in the Southern Interior of British Columbia. We cannot guarantee everyone who applies will be selected.
