The E-perm measuring system (class 25 device) is approved and certified by Health Canada, this allows it to be used for real estate transactions as a legal test, provided that its administered by a Health Canada certified professional. The E-perm system is designed to work with state of the art software developed by Rad Elec to provide easy to read documents with complete quality assurance.
How we mitigate radon in your house
We perform a diagnostic test to determine the slab pressure and where to locate the suction pit. We seal and caulk all cracks in the foundation, walls and all openings that will allow radon gas to enter the building. The installation of a 4" pipe with a suction fan is designed to remove the radon through a controlled point, exhausting it to the outside of the building where it can be deluded reducing health risks.
