Chemical Cleaning In Swansea
Storage and Safety Concerns
Hydrofluoric acid is corrosive and readily destroys tissue and bone. HF readily penetrates human skin, allowing it to destroy soft tissues underneath and to decalcify bone (hypocalcemea). HF is moderately corrosive to metals and will dissolve glass – hydrofluoric acid must not be stored in glass bottles.
Skin exposure to concentrated HF (49% or greater) immediately results in serious and painful destruction of tissue. One of HF’s most insidious properties is that skin contact at lower concentrations may not produce pain or burning sensations until hours after the exposure. Because of the ability of HF to produce severe delayed tissue damage without producing pain, all skin, eye, or tissue contact with HF should receive immediate first aid and medical evaluation, even if the injury appears minor or no pain is felt.
Inhaling HF vapours can seriously damage the lungs. Delayed reactions up to and including fatal pulmonary edema (flooding of the lungs with body fluids) may not be apparent for hours after the initial exposure. Airborne concentrations of 10 to 15 ppm will irritate the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. Thirty ppm is considered immediately dangerous to life and health and may have irreversible health effects. At airborne concentrations above 50 ppm, even brief exposure may be fatal. All operations involving HF must be conducted in an exhausting hood.
Any space using HF should be clearly labelled throughout the process. The ‘Hydrofluoric Acid In Use’ sign should not be removed until work has been completed and the area has been cleaned

CCWC recently carried out some quite complex very high-level cleaning and maintenance works for us and they organised everything. Such as Traffic Management on extremely busy main roundabout and also Pedestrian management to coincide. CCWC Services made it a painless experience at a more than competitive cost, we will definitely be using them again in the very near future.David EvansFacilities Manger Trivallis Local Housing Authority

Lee has always been quick to respond to emails and phone calls and his quotes are very competitively placed. I expect a lot from all of my contractors, and often have strict requirements and budgets to meet; Lee is extremely flexible and has always managed to meet my expectations with the service that CCWC Services provide.

Cardiff City Football Club has been using the services of CCWC for a couple of years and have to say the quality of their work is second to none. Not only do they always turn up on time and as agreed but their staff work diligently, with a smile and always leave the stadium as they found it. Coupled with the fact that their admin and contact response time is excellent I would recommend other companies to use CCWC with the confidence of a first-class service!Chris MartinStewart Logistics Officer
