Dedicated Mercury Spillage Cleaning

With years of professional experience and access to specialist cleaning techniques, we’re well-equipped to handle any situation that arises in Herne Bay.

Our experts have years of experience in the mercury spillage cleaning field.

Mercury is an element we encounter in our everyday lives through low levels of exposure. However, in high levels and over a long period, the effects of mercury could prove fatal, especially if you are unaware of the dangers.

If a spill occurs in the workplace or at home, you must be quick and prioritise your safety first. Even a small amount of elemental mercury vapour could be deadly and leave you feeling the effects of mercury poisoning. Here at ICE Cleaning, we provide rapid-response cleaning for mercury spills. No matter the size, we can tackle a spill and make the area a safe place again.

Is mercury still used today?

Regulations surrounding mercury usage were tightened around 2007 to 2008 worldwide, with the European Union beginning their restrictions as early as 2006. Despite this, mercury still plays an active role through natural or synthetic encounters.

Humans can often ingest small doses of organic mercury (methylmercury) by consuming large, predatory fish. If eaten in large portions over an extended period, the effects of mercury poisoning may make themselves present. Humans might also encounter mercury in industrial settings, such as factories, recycling facilities, and warehouses that store mercury.

However, mercury is still used today in some electrical devices such as:

  • Fluorescent and energy-saving lightbulbs
  • Backlights
  • Electrical switches
  • Mobile phones
  • Batteries
  • Semi-conductors

What are the symptoms of mercury poisoning?

Mercury poisoning occurs if you inhale, ingest, or touch a large amount of mercury or encounter low levels over a long period. The body will eventually begin to react to the element, and it can lead to severe consequences if not addressed immediately. You could experience symptoms that vary depending on the type of mercury you were exposed to, but the most shared symptoms are:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Tremors
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Chest or stomach pains

If you encounter mercury and show symptoms, you must call 999 or attend A&E immediately. These symptoms could develop into severe illnesses and even death if not addressed quickly.

How to prevent mercury poisoning

Mercury poisoning is avoidable if you do not work in an environment where mercury is present, but you could still be at risk. Even though the odds of encountering high levels of mercury are low, you should always remain vigilant if you are a vulnerable individual. You can avoid mercury poisoning by:

  • Requesting that your dentist replaces any mercury amalgam fillings you may have
  • Disposing of any mercury products in your home under hazard disposal regulations
  • Limiting the consumption of fish and shellfish that contain mercury
  • Not eating fish or shellfish that contain mercury if you are pregnant or breastfeeding

If you work in an environment where you believe a mercury spill is probable, you could take steps in the workplace to prevent poisoning. You can do this by:

  • Carrying out a chemical spill risk assessment often
  • Ensuring there is PPE available on-site
  • Requesting that spill kits be available
  • Identifying hazards that may cause a spill and report them immediately
