Rapid Response Mercury Spillage Cleaning

With years of experience in the mercury spillage cleaning sector, we’re on hand to deal with all your cleaning needs in Whitstable.

Our mercury spillage cleaning solutions are second to none

Mercury is a naturally occurring element found in the Earth's crust, within ores like cinnabar. Elemental, organic, and inorganic forms of mercury each present their own risks and symptoms. Although we consume acute levels of methylmercury often, we will usually never experience severe mercury poisoning.

Elemental mercury spills and evaporates at room temperature, turning into an invisible, odourless toxic vapour that can lead to severe mercury poisoning. You must evacuate the area during a spill and contact ICE Cleaning. Our expert cleaners are highly-qualified technicians with years of experience in mercury cleaning.

How does mercury affect our bodies?

All three forms of mercury present their own dangers and symptoms, but they share a common toxic trait. When mercury enters our body, the bloodstream absorbs it, which crosses the blood-brain barrier to cause neurological damage. Mercury is more likely to attack the kidneys and vital organs in your torso, which can lead to long-term illnesses such as Minamata disease.

Organic Mercury

  • Vomiting
  • Necrosis
  • Circulatory collapse
  • Abdominal pain
  • Muscle twitching

Inorganic Mercury

  • Deafness
  • Numbness
  • Nervous system damage
  • Headaches
  • Blindness

Elemental Mercury

  • Sore gums
  • Hallucinations
  • Skin rashes and peeling
  • Respiratory pain and dysfunction
  • Tremors

What should you do if you have touched mercury?

Government sources indicate then if you touch mercury, you should immediately remove any soiled clothing and wash the affected skin. Do this with lukewarm water and soap for ten to fifteen minutes, and call 111 for advice. If you spot early symptoms of mercury poisoning like a headache or fatigue, you must contact 999 or attend A&E.

To prevent exposure when mercury spills, you must evacuate immediately and contact a professional cleaning company. These people will be more qualified to handle a mercury spill and will decontaminate the infected area.

If you have ingested or inhaled a large amount of mercury, you must seek medical attention immediately to remove the mercury from your body.

How to stay safe at work

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) advises that employers conduct a chemical spill risk assessment at least once a year. This is enforceable by law, and neglecting the safety of your workplace could lead to a fine and legal repercussions. You must have procedures enforced that will prevent spills and advise your workers on what to do during a dangerous incident. Ensure that your workers do the following to minimise mercury poisoning in the workplace:

  • Have access to spill kits and PPE
  • Wash at the end of a workday
  • Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking, or touching their face
  • Use eye wash fountains or emergency showers if mercury touches the skin or clothes
  • Ensure work clothes are disposed of if contaminated
  • Label storage containers properly
  • Monitor the air purity regularly
  • Attend training, understand hazard information, know about emergency response procedures

If you are unsure or unaware of what a chemical spill risk assessment consists of, the HSE has a guide on its website available for free. You must prioritise the health and safety of your workers and keep your workplace as safe as it can possibly be if mercury is present.
