Specialist mercury cleaners.

We provide a rapid, professional cleaning solution for hazardous chemical spillages. Mercury spillages can be extremely dangerous and as such should only be cleaned up by a professional cleaning company. Call us today for professional advice.

Due to its dangerous nature, a mercury spillage should be treated as an emergency situation. Exposure to this element from inhalation or ingestion may lead to health implications ranging from chest tightness and breathing difficulties to hallucinations and personality changes. More information about the risks associated with mercury exposure can be found on the government's website.

Attempting to deal with the spillage yourself is perilous and unsafe. It’s not worth the risk. 

When it comes to disposal, mercury is classed as a hazard to human health and the environment and therefore cannot be disposed of in a general waste bin. There have been several guidelines set by the Environmental Agency to ensure that any form of a mercury spill, no matter the size, is lawfully disposed of at an approved waste facility centre. We are certified to carry waste and can dispose of a range of substances, including biohazards and hazardous waste such as mercury.

We're fully accredited

Our Cleaning technicians have undergone extensive health and safety training and hold a variety of industry-accredited qualifications, including:

Regardless of the size of the mercury spillage, you should always call a professional cleaning company for assistance.

Mercury is a naturally occurring substance found in soil, air and water. Due to its versatile composition, it is used for a variety of public utilities, such as:

  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • High-pressure sodium lamps
  • Speciality lamps
  • Lighthouses
  • Batteries

While mercury is completely safe whilst contained, if spilt, dangers may arise. Mercury is a very toxic element. It can enter the body via either inhalation or through wounds, causing serious harm to your health.

How to deal with mercury spillages?

All mercury spillages should be dealt with promptly and professionally to avoid jeopardising your health. Industry regulations state that a spill bigger than one pound should be considered a dire and dangerous situation, which only a fully licensed professional cleaning team should deal with.

Whilst waiting for professional assistance, there are a number of steps you should take to stay safe. Poison Control suggests the following advice:

Block the site
Either barricade or put signs around the affected area so that others know not to enter the room.

Keep pets and children away
Children and pets should stay away from the mercury spillage at all times as they’re unlikely to realise the extent of the dangers.

Wear gloves and a mask
If you must go near the affected area, make sure to wear rubber, nitrile or latex gloves and a protective face mask.

Beware of sharp items
There may be shattered glass or other sharp objects. Do not attempt to move or pick them up without correct personal protective equipment.

Do not use a vacuum
You should not attempt to vacuum or dispose of the mercury without professional assistance. Mercury must be taken to a specific disposal site.

If you are looking for a rapid yet efficient response, look no further. We are on-hand for all of your mercury needs. We currently hold a 100% success rate on all mercury clean-up & disposal services. Give us a call today to receive a free no-obligation quote.
