Radon on the periodic table of elements.

What is radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas that is colourless, odourless and tasteless. It forms by the breakdown of uranium, a natural radioactive substance found in soil, rock and groundwater. When radon is released from the ground into the outdoor air, it gets diluted to low concentrations and is not a concern. However, in enclosed spaces, like basements, it can sometimes accumulate to high levels, which can be a risk to the health of you and your family.

Aqua-Check's Service

Aqua-Check Inc has provided over 10,000 radon tests in Nova Scotia to date. We currently offer radon testing to both commercial and residential clients.
 

We offer full service Measurement of Radon levels across the Province. We can perform short-term tests (ideal for real estate transactions) or long-term tests, which give you a more accurate, complete representation of radon levels. Aqua-Check uses EPERMs known in the industry as the gold standard of testing techniques. All tests are carried out using Health Canada standards.

 

Long-term testing is usually performed during the winter season to provide a more accurate result. All short-term testing is performed under closed house conditions which can mean that occupants may have to change their living style (e.g. all windows must be closed throughout the 2-7 day test).
