Test Your Home for Radon

A little over 3 years ago, the former USA hockey player Rachael Malmberg, a never-smoker, was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer at the age of 31 years old.

Rachael has always been healthy and exercised regularly. When she started experiencing consistent pain in her back and ribs, she thought nothing of it.

However, when she went to see a doctor, she was hit with the devastating news.

Already have a system?

If your home has a radon mitigation system in place, check the manometer installed on the radon pipe in your basement. It’s important to know that the U-tube is not an indication of the levels of Radon in a home but simply a monitor to show that the fan is on and moving air.

If the fluid in the U-tube is equal on both sides, your fan is not working properly.

Why Test?

Radon can build up under any type of foundation built at any time in history.

Just because you had your home tested when you bought it 10 years ago doesn’t mean Radon levels are the same as they were back then.

A bi-annual Radon test is best practice to ensure your home is safe.

Radon varies from season to season, and the highest radon levels are generally found during the winter when our homes are sealed more tight and centrally heated.

You can perform the test yourself or hire a radon mitigation specialist who can help you perform the test and advise whether a radon mitigation solution is needed.
