Mercury Abatement

Mercury abatement requires detailed, professional removal, cleanup and disposal, Bockmann has the experience and personnel to manage and complete such removals to meet your needs, and maintain compliance with all required jurisdictions.  

Mercury is a metal that is toxic to living organisms. It exists in several forms, some of which occur naturally in the environment.

Metallic or elemental mercury – an odorless, shiny, silver-white liquid – is commonly used in thermometers, barometers and fluorescent light bulbs. Metallic mercury is extremely dangerous. A few drops can generate enough fumes to contaminate the air in a room. Furthermore, skin contact with mercury can result in its absorption into the blood stream and potential health problems.

Building materials that could contain mercury, include but are not limited to: fluorescent lamps, HID lamps, switches, barometers, thermometers, thermostats, some commercial HVAC equipment; and flow meters.

More concerning is the use of mercury in the manufacturing some rubber track and gymnasium flooring systems installed in the 1970s, mostly found in schools and university gymnasiums.
