Radon Testing and Mitigation Services
Pinchin's C-NRPP* Certified Staff Deliver Professional Radon Testing and Mitigation Services for Due Diligence and Occupant Health and Safety.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is present outdoors and within every building. The problem arises when too much radon accumulates inside a building and becomes an indoor air quality issue and health hazard. You cannot see, smell or taste radon and as a result, elevated levels could be present inside a building and you would never know without testing for it.
How does Radon Enter and Affect your Building?
A common misconceptions about radon is that it can only enter buildings with basements. Radon can enter any building that is in contact with the underlying soil and/or rock. More information on why to test for Radon in Commercial/Institutional Buildings and Homes.
Health Canada has released data from their Cross-Canada Survey of Radon Concentrations in Homes, Yr 1: Update January 2011
Testing for Radon
Testing for radon is a relatively simple procedure when testing a single family dwelling but is more complicated when testing a larger building such as a school, office buildings. Considerations include occupancy patterns within rooms, and the proximity of the device to the floor, walls, ceiling, other objects and mechanical systems in the test area.
