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.
