Qualified Mercury Spillage Cleaning

Our mercury spillage cleaning experts are available for clients across the nation, including Ramsgate.

We’re Ramsgate’s leading experts for mercury spillage cleaning solutions.

Mercury is an element which continues to have an impact on our lives without us realising it. It is naturally occurring within the Earth's crust, and we have continued to use it for years as the technology progresses. However, it poses a severe risk to the human body when inhaled, ingested, or touched — making it a hazardous chemical during a spill.

Here at ICE Cleaning, we offer fast and effective mercury spill removal. Our expert technicians can clean, contain, and decontaminate the affected area and ensure it is a safe place to occupy again. We are available around the clock, 365 days a year, nationwide — and could arrive on-site within a few hours in an emergency.

You can either give us a call at 0208 066 0360 or email us at to find out more about the full range of industrial cleaning services available for customers in Ramsgate.

How to dispose of mercury products

In 2006, the EU implemented the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive to ensure proper disposal and recycling of electronic objects. These products often contain small traces of mercury, and WEEE works to remove mercury from them with special treatment that separates the element from the it. you will most commonly find have traces of mercury in them are:

  • Fluorescent lamps
  • Medical measuring equipment (thermometers and barometers)
  • Relay switches
  • Mobile phones
  • Circuit boards
  • Backlights
  • Batteries

Because mercury requires specialist disposal under the WEEE regulations, you must take special care when you want to recycle electrical items or dispose of mercury products. The best way to do this is by checking your local council's hazard waste disposal guidelines:

What are the dangers of mercury exposure?

If you have experienced mercury exposure and begin to show symptoms, you should immediately call 999 or attend A&E due to the severity of mercury poisoning. Short-term mercury exposure could still inflict uncomfortable symptoms, but it is treatable. The symptoms of short-term exposure can include:

  • Skin and eye irritation
  • Coughing and wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach and chest pains

Long-term exposure can inflict far more damage on the human body, leaving the affected individual with ailments that might last for years and end in a coma or even death. These health effects could include:

  • Cancer
  • Poor fertility
  • Foetal damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Neurological damage
  • Minamata disease (chronic mercury poisoning)

What types of mercury exposure are there?

Two types of exposures can happen with the different forms of mercury we occur in our lives. Because mercury is a natural element that plays a role in our lives, it may be hard to avoid small exposures — but these are often harmless. However, consistent exposure over a long period might pose a threat.

General exposure

This is the most common way you will encounter mercury exposure. These are smaller amounts, but they are still considered a risk — and you must be vigilant when you face these exposures:

  • Consumption of large predatory fish, shellfish, and some poultry
  • Consumption of vegetables from contaminated soils
  • Unregulated cosmetics or soaps
  • Damaged products that contain mercury (fluorescent bulbs, batteries, circuit boards, etc.)
  • Exposure due to landfill and general waste

Occupational exposure

These exposures are far more dangerous to an individual and often occur in the workplace. With appropriate health and safety guidelines, and on-site tools, containment will be more effective. The circumstances of these exposures are related to:

  • The manufacturing of mercury products
  • Recycling in hazardous waste disposal facilities
  • Gold or mercury mining operations
  • Poor industrial environments
