How Do I Test My Home for Radon?
Testing for radon is easy and inexpensive.
The Lung Association sells long-term (minimum of three months) radon tests that are recommended by Health Canada. You can also hire a professional to measure your home, visit c-nrpp.ca/find-a-professional/ for more information.
It is best to test for radon over the winter months, when there is less air movement in your home. Place the radon test in the lowest level of your home where you and/or your family spend at least 4 hours a day. Avoid placing the radon tester in an area close to a heat source or where it could get wet. You will need to record the start and end date of your radon test. Afterwards, return the radon test to The Lung Association, Saskatchewan. Your radon test results will be mailed to you. Make sure all of your mailing and contact information on your radon test package is correct and easy to read.
