Radon is an invisible gas that can cause lung cancer. The Nova Scotia region has homes with elevated levels of radon and most homes should try to reduce the radon gas as low as possible, to prevent future health risk. The only way to know how much radon is in your home is to test it.
The Canadian Cancer Society recommends that Canadians should test their homes for radon and should take action to reduce the high levels.
To test your home for radon, you can purchase a test kit at some hardware stores, online or you can also hire our certified radon tester to perform a test for you and your family. Leaving you worry free and awaiting the results.
It is best to view the map on a desk top or laptop computer, allowing you to use all of its tools and discover if you live in a potential area of elevated levels of radon.
The most highest levels of radon gas in the Halifax Regional Municipality, can be found in the Halifax City Area, Clayton Park, Bayers Lake, Timberlea, Hammonds Plains, Hubbards, Peggys Cove, Porters Lake, Musquodobort Harbour
If you have viewed the Nova Scotia Radon map in the link above, and believe that you and your family are living in an area of higher levels of radon. Then we strongly recommend getting a radon test completed for your peace of mind; as this will be the only way to know. Once the radon test is completed with one of our certified radon testers, we will review the results with you and explain the options to lower the possible dangerous high levels of radon in your home.
