Radon gas is found in most homes and buildings across all of Canada. This is primarily due to the fact that it occurs naturally in the ground. Concentration levels of Radon can vary significantly throughout the country and tend to be greater in areas where there is a higher amount of Uranium present in the underlying bedrock and soil. Radon concentration levels can drastically differ from one house to the next, with two largely determining factors being the method of construction used for each home, as well as the underlying geology beneath the earth.
The ONLY way to know the Radon levels in your home is to TEST.

The air pressure inside your home is usually lower than in the soil surrounding the foundation. This difference in pressure draws air and other gases, including radon, from the soil into your home.
Radon can enter a home any place it finds an opening where the house contacts the soil: cracks in foundation walls and in floor slabs, construction joints, gaps around service pipes, support posts, window casements, floor drains, sumps or cavities inside walls.
