Radon in Calgary | What you need to know! #yycre #calgary #yyc
Radon is a normally happening gas created from the radioactive rot of uranium in rocks and soil. It is dry, unscented and tasteless. It is incredibly common in the Canadian prairies having been saved by ice sheets. It saturates homes through splits in dividers, floors and establishments and through floor channels and sumps. Houses in virus atmospheres are at specific hazard since windows and entryways are kept shut for over a large portion of the year and there’s regularly little air flow, which makes a vacuum impact.
“Radon is the the second-leading cause of lung cancer in Canada, accounting for about 16 per cent of cases or 1,900 deaths per year. Scientific studies have linked the risk of developing lung cancer to prolonged exposure to high levels of radon gas. A 2009-11 national study of 14,000 homes showed more than 1,500 had unacceptable levels.”
