We’re available around the clock for customers in Sevenoaks and can be on-site in a few hours in the event of an emergency.

In its most identifiable form, elemental mercury — known as quicksilver — is a naturally occurring element found across the planet in the ocean, rocks, and some soils. It has unique properties that make it a dangerous metal — when elemental mercury spills at room temperature, it evaporates into a poisonous vapour.

When mercury spills, it is imperative that you act quickly and remain calm. You must evacuate and contact mercury spillage cleaning experts at ICE Cleaning. Do not try to clean up the mercury yourself, and keep your distance as the effects of mercury could be deadly to the body. Our cleaners can be on-site within just a few hours in an emergency.

To find out more about our full range of cleaning services, give us a call at 0208 066 0360 or email us at enquiries@icecleaning.co.uk and a member of our friendly support team will get back to you as soon as possible.

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

ICE Cleaning's specialist technicians use state-of-the-art technology to contain, clean, and decontaminate an area to make it safe to occupy again. They will arrive on-site to survey the scene, identifying the mercury levels in the air and the severity of the spill.

If you have any questions for them you are welcome to speak with them to understand the process. Our industrial-grade solutions will remove any trace of mercury liquid or vapour from the area, and we shall test the air purity before we leave.
Is mercury banned?

Although some uses of mercury are banned in products such as thermometers, it has a continued presence in electrical products. Thanks to the Minamata Convention on Mercury — enforced in 2017 — the use of mercury is drastically declining as more alternatives arise.

There are advanced alternatives to products that once contained mercury, but it still poses a risk to the public, especially to those in industrial environments. The public does not have to worry about high-level exposures, but there is always a possibility due to the presence of mercury in some food we ingest.

What are the risks of mercury exposure?

We are exposed to low levels of mercury throughout our lives without realising it, and we do not suffer any ill effects from this often. However, mercury in fish and shellfish could still inflict damage if consumed in large quantities. Those that work with mercury are also at risk of high levels of exposure.

If you experience acute mercury exposure, consult a medical expert, or call 111 immediately. However, if you encounter large amounts, you must phone 999 or attend A&E. Always be aware of any symptoms of onset mercury poisoning such as:

  • Headache
  • Skin and eye irritation
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  •  Chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Metallic taste in the mouth

Who is at risk of chronic mercury exposure?

Occupational exposures are a type of exposure that occurs in the workplace, where individuals are working with dangerous chemicals that could cause serious harm to them. Those that work in these environments are more vulnerable to chronic mercury exposure:

Medical workers

Dentists, doctors, and nurses are vulnerable to mercury exposure through either mercury dental amalgams or broken devices such as a thermometer and barometers.

Factory workers

Facilities that assemble automotive parts or electrical products will use mercury components in some of their processes. This is due to mercury's conductive nature, meaning it is still vital to general production in some workplaces.

Chemical plant workers

Mercury products thrown into incorrect recycling bins may break and expose workers to a spill. This can also occur in hazardous waste recycling and disposal facilities, but there are more strict health and safety procedures.

Recycling facility workers

If mercury products are placed into incorrect recycling bins, they may break and expose workers to a spill. This can also occur in hazardous waste recycling and disposal facilities, but there are normally more strict health and safety procedures.

We cover all areas in the Sevenoaks District in Kent, including:

  • Ash
  • Brasted
  • Chipstead
  • Crockenhill
  • Edenbridge
  • Fawkham
  • Four Elms
  • Hever
  • Horton Kirby
  • New Ash Green
  • Otford
  • Penhurst
  • Swanley
  • Underriver
  • Westerham

How to keep your work environment safe

If you are a worker in danger of chronic mercury exposure, you must know your current health and safety regulations. With annual chemical spill risk assessments and formal training, you can help avoid a spill or exposure in the workplace and keep your fellow workers safe. The Health & Safety Executive has published a mercury guidance sheet that advises on maintaining safety:

Identify hazards

Be vigilant in the workplace and identify hazards before they become a potential spill or exposure risk. Educate yourself on the form of mercury you work with and understand the dangers.

Understand the equipment and procedures

Identify where mercury exposure is more likely to occur, and ensure there is appropriate signage in the area. There should be proper PPE on-site and mercury spill kits to help contain a spill if it occurs. Masks and gloves must always be well-stocked to keep inhalation probability low.

Maintain and clean

Under UK law, you must conduct a chemical spill risk assessment annually. Your inventory should always contain cleaning supplies, and old equipment should be replaced with more advanced versions to avoid spills or accidents.
