COVID-19 & Radon Exposure

Apr 28, 2020Uncategorized

Due to COVID-19 safety measures, families should be more concerned than ever about the possibility of elevated radon levels in their homes, given how much time our families, children, pets, and tenants are spending in our homes, basements, and even rental properties.

Merely being home nearly all hours of the day increases your exposure to the harmful effects of elevated radon in affected homes─particularly in the Prairie Provinces, a well-known high-risk region for increased radon exposure.

Stay Informed, Stay Safe

With the increased hours we are spending at home to protect ourselves from the threat of COVID-19, we strongly recommend testing for elevated radon levels to ensure your family’s health and safety are not being threatened while indoors for these extended stays.

The good news: there are several simple and inexpensive ways to prevent radon levels from getting too dangerous in your home.

DAS offers multiple solutions that can not only effectively reduce the radon levels in your home but also purify your home’s air of substances such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pathogens, allergens, mould, odours, and E. coli–increasing the efficiency of your heating, cooling, and ventilation systems overall as well.
