Ben Mario with his family in their home.
These days Ben Mario and his family are breathing in the love, not radon. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and Saskatchewan is a hot spot. By taking action to reduce radon levels, you ensure safe, healthy air in your home which helps prevent lung cancer. You can’t see, taste or smell radon. The only way to know how much is in your home is to test for it.
Ben Mario tested his home for radon because he has two small children that play in the basement - an area of the home where radon levels are the highest. When their radon test results showed their home had high levels of the dangerous gas, Ben took action right away with the help of a certified radon reduction expert to lower the radon levels significantly. “I have peace of mind that I am not putting myself and family at risk in our home,” says Ben.
