Breathe Easier with Our Radon Testing Services in Medicine Hat
Did you know that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada after tobacco? Many Canadians are aware of hazardous substances like carbon monoxide, but few people know of radon and its dangers. This hazardous gas comes from the decay of uranium in the soil, rock, and water under our buildings.
Most of the time, radon levels are too low to pose a problem, but levels can range throughout the country. Get peace of mind by booking our radon testing services in the Medicine Hat area. We want you to breathe easier knowing you’ve taken active steps to keep your household or office protected.
