DANGER!! Health Canada Warns of #2 Cause of Lung Cancer

by

On Tuesday, the Globe and Mail reported that The Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health hosted an awareness event to encourage Canadians to test their homes for radon. Radon is so dangerous because you cannot see it, smell it or taste it but it can kill you.  Health Canada is now in the middle of a 2 year study to determine how much of aproblem this is in Canada. After the first year, they found that a whopping 7% of homes in Canada have this problem. The Lung Association claims that over 2,000 Canadians die each year from Radon gas caused lung cancer. This is quite serious. It is imperative that everyone tests their homes. Even if elevated levels are found, it is quite simple to fix.

Testing for Radon must be performed with many very specific parameters. Although Do It Yourself kits are available, would you do lung surgery on your own? I would call a professional to make sure my home is safe.

The cost of testing is $249 but discounts apply for service customers.

Premi-Air ClimateCare is licensed to Test for Radon and to Mitigate if Radon is found.

The ClimateCare network of contractors is the largest group in Ontario with all the licenses and skills to perform this work. For testing or mitigation, please call us at 416-781-1054.
