FundyPros Insulation has a solution for radon gas problemsFriday, July 6 2012
According to an article written by Health Canada, long-term exposure of residents to high levels of radon gas in homes may increase the risk of developing lung cancer. Radon, a gas produced naturally, can penetrate homes through cracks in foundation, wall and floors, gaps around pipes or basement drains. When it is confined to enclosed spaces like homes for a long-term exposure to high levels, this odorless, colorless and tasteless gas is dangerous for the health of the individuals. A study shows that an average of 10% of lung cancers in Canada are linked to radon gas and it is the second leading cause of that type of cancer after smoking. The only way to know is to test the homes.
FundyPros Insulation may help home owners prevent or help fix this incident. Our spray foam insulation can be sprayed under slab before pouring the concrete to help prevent radon gas from penetrating in the house through the floor. On the other hand, we also have the solution for houses with high-levels of radon gas. The same product can be part of a radon gas system to prevent increased gas penetration in homes by sealing the joints. We install insulation in a variety of residential, commercial, industrial and institutional settings.
