The main thing is to know where to call if the thermometer breaks. Mercury decontamination cannot be carried out on our own – our company exists for this.
Why you should contact us.
In almost every home, mercury can be found in certain household appliances, but most often it is used by people in thermometers and fluorescent lamps. Both of these items are extremely fragile, and you don’t even need to use force to damage them. Often, thermometers are beaten by children, and adults often drop them on the floor. Mercury, which belongs to the substances of the first category of danger, immediately breaks free. The problem is aggravated by the fact that this substance is completely odorless, and it is completely impossible to independently understand that the room is filled with fumes of liquid metal. It is in such cases that a mercury service is needed, which will take over the elimination of the consequences of a domestic accident.
Mercury decontamination can only be carried out by specialists with all the specific skills and knowledge. Our mercury service completely neutralizes the dangerous liquid metal, after which your home will be completely clean.

Why mercury is dangerous, and what needs to be done before mercury demercurization is carried out?
The specialists of our company go to the place after the first call. However, there are some safety precautions you should be aware of while waiting for the emergency services to arrive. Even one broken thermometer in an apartment can cause a real environmental disaster that spreads to neighboring homes. To prevent this from happening, you must follow these rules:
The place where the thermometer crashed should be immediately isolated and a further spill of dangerous metal should be blocked, household members, especially children, should not be allowed to it.
It is advisable to reduce the temperature in the room where mercury has spilled as quickly as possible – it should be less than +18 degrees (it is at this value of the thermometer column that intensive evaporation of the liquid metal begins). To do this, turn off the heating in the house and open the windows, you can also turn on the air conditioner.
As soon as all previous security measures have been completed, it is necessary to leave the premises (it is necessary to ensure that no pets remain in the room).
Immediately after that, you should dial the emergency number “Expert Mercury”. Our specialist will inform you by phone about the next course of action..
It is important to understand that mercury decontamination can only be carried out by specially trained people using appropriate equipment in the process. Ordinary household products are not able to provide full protection against mercury and its fumes. The main danger in such a situation is precisely the vapors of liquid metal that a person inhales without even feeling it. The adverse effects of such an impact can be felt not immediately, but after a long time. Now you know where to call if the thermometer breaks. Our mercury service exists in order to completely protect you from all the risks associated with the careless handling of silver-gray liquid metal..
How to prevent disaster if the thermometer crashed
Before mercury demercurization is carried out by our specialists, you need to remain calm and adhere to all the recommendations described above. There is also a list of actions that our mercury service advises to refrain from in this situation:
In no case should you take responsibility and engage in amateur activities, making decisions that contradict the personal instructions received from our specialist.
Neither you nor the rest of the household should be in an infected room – you need to leave it as soon as possible. It is very important that no one breathes mercury vapor, so it is best to go outside, to fresh air. If this is not possible, you should simply move to another room, completely isolated from the one in which the mercury spilled..
Do not try to collect mercury yourself, as during this process you will breathe harmful fumes..
It is forbidden to take out a broken thermometer and mercury residues in a trash can, or throw them in a garbage chute.
It is forbidden to collect liquid metal using a vacuum cleaner or a broom.
It is impossible to arrange a draft in the room until the mercury is removed.
If clothes or shoes have come into contact with liquid metal, they should not be washed in a washing machine..
