TEST YOUR HOME FOR RADON

The Canadian Cancer Society urges all Manitobans to test their homes for Radon.

Radon is a colorless, odorless cancer-causing gas that enters homes through

cracks and gaps in the floors and walls of basements, and can build up over time.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Get your home or business tested.  Radon is easy to test for and can usually be

reduced to safe levels with the help of a professional radon mitigator.

You can find Canadian professional radon mitigators listed on the National

Environmental Health Association website at  www.neha-nrpp.org/cnrpp.shtml.

You can purchase low-cost testing kits through the Canadian Cancer Society by

calling toll-free at 1-888-532-6982.
