Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that accumulates in the soil and rock as a result of the natural breakdown of uranium. The radon can seep from the soil into nearby homes, creating significant health risks.
Health Canada recommends that homeowners take action to reduce radon levels that exceed the federal guideline of 200 Bq/m3. It is estimated that 7% of Canadian homes fall into this category.
Radon is odourless and colourless. Naturaseal’s NS-RadonShield will seamlessly coat the entire basement with a membrane that will protect against the intrusion of water, mold and radon. It is highly elastomeric, and will not crack as the foundation walls expand and contract due to seasonal weather changes.
