Dewpoint® Professional Corporate Membership

We’re leading the way for mercury spillage cleaning solutions in Tenterden.

Here at ICE Cleaning, we work proudly with several health and safety companies that train our workers effectively and give them the tools to work with various cleaning incidents. Regardless of the severity of a mercury spill, our cleaners will utilise their equipment and solutions contain the threat efficiently.

Our cleaners will always wear PPE and prioritise the safety of our clients throughout the process. If you have questions about our tools or chemical solutions, talk to the technicians on-site or contact our support team.

We use industry-leading technology combined with chemicals to contain, clean, and decontaminate an area. Before and after the cleaning, we will test the levels of mercury in the air to ensure there is no further risk to you or anyone else in the environment.

Are mercury spills less common now?

Thanks to advancements in technology in research, we finally understand the severe effects that mercury exposure can have on the body. These documented events have led to a reduction in mercury, slowly phasing out mercury mining and its use in electronic and measuring products. However, this is still in progress, and we still haven't fully eradicated our use of the element. You may find traces of mercury in products like:

  • Backlights
  • Thermometers
  • Barometers
  • Batters
  • Electrical switches and relays
  • Fluorescent lightbulbs
  • Skin-lightening cosmetics
  • Dental fillings

You should always check for traces of mercury in any new product you purchase, and ensure anything you own is safe to keep. You can dispose of mercury products properly by following your local council's advice on hazardous waste disposal.

What are the risks of mercury exposure?

Although we all encounter low levels of mercury throughout our lives, we will usually never experience the detrimental effects of mercury poisoning. Acute exposures that remain consistent over a long time could still inflict mercury poisoning, whereas chronic exposure can show symptoms much quicker. Long-term exposure may lead to you suffering the effects of:

  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Skin and eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Organ damage
  • Brain damage
  • Nervous system damage

  • Aldington
  • Ashford

How can you encounter mercury exposure?

You could experience mercury exposure in two ways, one more common than the other. You will not usually have to worry about high levels of exposure, but you must always remain vigilant around mercury products you feel are safe.

General exposure

This is the most common form of exposure you will experience in your life. These often occur at low levels for only a short amount of time, but if there is consistent exposure it could harm your health severely. You can encounter these exposures through:

  • Being exposed to hazardous waste
  • Using or breaking mercury products
  • Using mercury cosmetics
  • Consuming large predatory fish or shellfish
  • Consuming contaminated vegetables

Occupational exposures

If you work in industrial settings like a factory, chemical plant, recycling facility, or warehouse, you are more likely to be exposed to mercury. With good health and safety procedures and frequent chemical spill risk assessments, chronic exposures are preventable. However, you could still potentially become exposed by:

  • Improper storage or transportation of mercury
  • Mining ore that contains mercury
  • Actively producing mercury products
  • Producing cement or metal
  • Working closely with electronic devices that use mercury
  • Working in a chemical plant that uses mercury cells
