Evict Radon researchers select Radonova as laboratory

February 4, 2019   Jillian Morgan

Alberta-based Evict Radon, a confederation of researchers, has selected Radonova as its testing laboratory.

Evict Radon encourages homeowners in Western Canada to test their homes for radon gas in the winter. The results from tests, which measure radon levels over a 90-day period, will be processed in Radonova’s laboratories.

“Early findings from our study indicate that in rural Alberta, one in six homes are impacted,” Aaron Goodarzi, lead researcher on the project and assistant professor at the University of Calgary, said.

“Radon is an invisible, odourless and tasteless gas that can accumulate to unnaturally high and dangerous levels in our homes,” Bill Rounds, president of Radonova, said. “We’re fully committed to working with Dr. Goodarzi’s team to ensure the project gets accurate results in a timely and professional manner to ensure the concept can be confidently rolled out to other regions.” www.radonova.com www.evictradon.ca
