Your Results & What They Mean

The Canadian guideline for radon in indoor air is 200 Bq/m3.

If you’ve tested your daycare, and the radon concentration is above the Canadian guideline of 200 Bq/m3, Health Canada recommends that you take action to lower the concentrations.

 

The higher the radon concentrations, the sooner action should be taken to reduce levels to as low as practically possible:

 

  • If your radon levels are between 200 – 600 Bq/m3  - Reduce your radon within 2 years

  • If your radon levels are 600+ Bq/m3 - Reduce your radon within 1 year

While the health risk from radon exposure below the Canadian guideline is small, there is no level that is considered risk free. It is the choice of each daycare/childcare facility to decide what level of radon exposure they are willing to accept.

Health Canada recommends that homeowners consult with a Radon Mitigation Professional certified by the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP) to determine the best radon reduction method. You can find a C-NRPP professional in Nova Scotia HERE
