If you have a mercury spill in your home, please read the information here before you start the clean-up process. Please remember to:

NEVER USE A HOUSEHOLD VACUUM CLEANER OR SHOP VACĀ® TO CLEAN UP MERCURY!
NEVER WASH MERCURY-SOILED ITEMS IN THE WASHING MACHINE!
NEVER USE A BROOM ON A MERCURY SPILL BECAUSE IT WILL SCATTER THE MERCURY DROPLETS AND MAKE THEM
HARDER TO FIND AND PICK UP!
NEVER POUR MERCURY DOWN THE DRAIN!
NEVER HEAT OR INCINERATE SOILED ITEMS!
