Mercury Spillage Cleaning Specialists

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

We’re able to provide a cleaning solution like no other for clients in West Malling.

Elemental, organic, and inorganic forms of mercury play a vital role in our lives. We will often experience low levels of exposure through mundane tasks like eating, drinking, and breathing. However, these are not high levels and should not cause concern. We encounter organic mercury more commonly by consuming predatory fish and shellfish. When elemental mercury spills, it can pose a health risk when we inhale the vapours.

When mercury spills, you must evacuate vulnerable people such as pregnant individuals, children, and the elderly. Do not try to contain the spill yourself unless you are qualified, and leave cleaning to the professionals here at ICE Cleaning. Our expert technicians can effectively clean, contain, and decontaminate any size of mercury spill.

Dewpoint® Professional Corporate Membership

Whether you require a one-off clean or new cleaning regime, we can help.

Our friendly cleaners will provide a detailed explanation on how we will move forward regarding your clean. The process includes testing mercury levels in the air, containing the spill, cleaning it, and decontaminating the entire area.

We use industry-leading technology and modern chemical solutions to tackle a mercury spill effectively, and our cleaners will remain on-site until the area is non-toxic again. Before we finish the job, we test the air once more to ensure it is safe.

How to prepare for a potential spill

Workplaces must have an emergency response prepared for any incident that may endanger human life. The Health and Safety executive outlines the measures you should ensure are in place. Because mercury has a Workplace Exposure Limit, you are legally obligated to take steps to reduce consequences in the event of a spill.

Create an emergency plan

  • How you will contain, control, and minimise dangerous effects on workers, the environment, and property.
  • How you implement these measures to protect the workers and environment
  • The actions you may take to limit consequences and control conditions
  • The roles you must assign to workers in the event of an emergency
  • The steps necessary to contact emergency services and communicate with local authorities
  • The assistance provided with off-site actions

How you will act in the moment

  • What emergency services to contact, and how to raise the alarm effectively
  • Using a spill kit if qualified or assisting with evacuation
  • Minimising contact with a spill

Evacuation process

  • Establish assembly areas
  • Have ID badges collected
  • Use a register to identify any missing people
  • Alert emergency services of a lost or trapped person

How can mercury cause harm?

There are a few factors to consider when there is a potential mercury exposure: the form of mercury you encountered, the length of exposure, and type of contact. These factors can inflict several varying symptoms, and the mercury could eventually infiltrate your bloodstream to cause irreversible harm. Severe mercury poisoning will occur and result in Minamata disease or death. The body parts most affected by mercury are:

  • Eyes
  • Skin
  • Gums
  • Thyroids
  • Lungs
  • Kidneys
  • Immune system
  •  Brain

How do we phase out the use of mercury?

Organisations like The Minamata Convention and World Health Organisation champion for clean alternatives to mercury. There are a few ways you can help these organisations reach their goals.

Dispose of your mercury products

Look around your home and collect all items that possibly contain mercury and dispose of them properly. You must follow your local council's hazardous waste disposal guidelines and not toss these away in general recycling or waste.

Switch to cleaner energy

If you have industrial boilers, or use a wood burner in your home where coal burns, you are releasing mercury into the environment. You can switch to alternative, clean heating sources such as an ethanol fireplace or an electric boiler.

Change your purchases

If you are looking for new electrical or measuring products, you should do some research before deciding. Some electrical products may still contain mercury, but there are alternatives available.
