Mercury Spill Cleanup Guidance Mobile App
Mercury can be found in a variety of household, commercial and industrial items such as fever thermometers, thermostats, and fluorescent light bulbs.
How does it work?
Also, some people keep liquid (elemental) mercury in bottles and other containers. Although, mercury performs many useful functions, it is toxic to humans and wildlife and should be managed properly. Most small mercury spills (fever thermometers) can be cleaned up easily. Please follow the instructions in the Mercury Spill Cleanup Guidance mobile app for cleaning up a small household mercury spill.
