Radon is a radioactive gas that cannot be seen, tasted or smelled but can harm your lungs. This gas comes from the natural decay of radioactive Uranium which is found in our soil. Everyone in Canada is exposed to radon and its effects.
It is not hard for radon to escape the soil. If your house does not have an air barrier system, radon can come from:
Radon gas can enter a structure through these routes and a wide range of openings – the establishment, outside dividers, bolster pillars, divider joints, floor channels, etc.
First, you have to know the level of radon that is currently in your building. You can easily do that through a digital radon test. The good thing about it is you don’t need to study and it is a test you cannot fail. The digital units will do the calculations for you, warning you of dangers that may be happening in indoor environments. This test will let you know when everything is OK. The World Health Organization has set an action level at 100 Bq/m3, anything higher and it is necessary to implement remediation steps to lower Radon levels.
Spray foaming your house leads to Radon Remediation And Prevention. Spray Foam Insulation is the most efficient method used by experts for protecting the building from radon harmful effects. It is already common knowledge that spray foam is the superior choice for insulation providing high radon-protection to the building. Spray foam creates a continuous air barrier that acts as the first line of defense against not only radon but other malignant gases. Besides this, spray foam is a vapour barrier that protects the foundation. It protects the building from major damages that can occur with the time.

I have a cottage in Muskoka, and we rent it throughout the year. We have noticed during the winter that our clients have been complaining about the heat not being good enough. After consulting it with Ecostar Insulation, we decided to go with them, and I have no regrets. Out cottage has never been warmer in the winter. Great Price and Professional Work.
Every winter for the past 4 years since I moved into this house, it has been cold inside my house. I tried getting different heaters, changing the ventilation, but the problem was actually in the insulation. The house is very old, and it cost me a lot of money during the winter time. BUT not anymore!! thanks to EcoStar Insulation. I have enjoyed last winter more than anything. Great job guys and keep it up. Tom.
We had a big project on our way, and our biggest issue was who will handle the insulation part. After contacting a few companies, EcoStar Insulation has proven to us that they are very professional, and they definitely stood to their word and got this done in time and without any issues. THANKS AGAIN!!!
We just bought a new unit and as we were renovating it, we noticed there wasn’t any insulation inside. Luckily, everything was stripped and ready for insulation, so we contacted Ecostar and they have done a phenomenal job.
