Safety first: why radon mitigation systems should be installed in more Canadian homes

Reacting to Radon

Local families and remediation experts share common sentiments about the value of radon testing

When Darcy and Audrey Undseth bought their southwest walkout bungalow in 2009, they were just learning of the dangers of radon gas.

Audrey, a doctor, had seen articles in medical journals on hazardous radon levels in basements.
