What is the difference between radon and radium?

Both radon and radium are naturally occurring substances that are in ground water and the ground. While both are very common and not considered harmful in low doses, high doses can pose a health hazard. Both can easily and inexpensively be removed from the air and the water. Radon and radium tend to occur in certain types of soils and in certain areas of the County. I usually discuss with my client and the Home Inspector as to whether testing for radon and radium is advisable. Usually the Seller will pay to have these products filtered from the air and water if they are found.
