For schools, commercial, community or municipal buildings, our prices for the above radon tests are reduced based on number of rooms and houses to be surveyed, length of time of survey, and whether the radon test is for air, soil or water. When you compare the prices, you will find that our company provides an excellent, inexpensive, economical and accurate short-term test, followed by a long term confirming test (optional), at a combined price which is less expensive than the one short-term test offered by our competitors. It costs you nothing to phone. So if anything, phone us for a comparable quote. We provide honest, independent test results.

Atlantic Water Investigations Limited is a professional radon gas surveying company, and we can confidently do radon gas testing in air, soil and water, on developed and undeveloped property. We have no vested interest in the sale of your building or property, selling ventilation systems or crack repairs. Once your building has been tested for radon gas, the next step will depend on the results from the test. Included as part of the testing, we provide complete interpretation of the results. You do not have to wait for a lab to do the test.

With Atlantic Water Investigations Limited there are no middle men. With the electret system there is no time or delay worrying like there is with the charcoal cannister or alpha track detectors, or additional laboratory costs. There is no need to worry about:

  • effects of humidity
  • if canister was analyzed within three days from the end of exposure or stored on the shelf
  • waiting for results

The best time of the year to test for indoor air radon gas is fall and winter, while the windows are closed up.  The best time of the year to test for soil radon gas, is the spring and summer, so you can design radon reduction controls into the building.

At any time you have a concern call us. If we do not know the answer we will research it for you. We have access to private, federal, and provincial laboratories, research institutes and professionals continually testing, evaluating. and updating the radon gas technology. Let us help you make your life environment more comfortable with peace of mind that the radon levels in your common living area are as low as practicable.
