Quarantine and Preparation for Deposit
Collections Quarantine and Preparing for Deposit
When accepting a collection for accession to your facility, it is essential to ensure that the incoming collection does not pose a risk of contaminating storage area with mould, infestation, moisture or excess levels of dust. Collections need to be dry, pest-free, clean and without mould contamination.
Harwell’s facilities can address all these issues. We can utilise our vacuum chambers to removed excess moisture from objects, our large freezers to kill insect contamination and then remove dust and mould contamination from surfaces with our skilled team.
In addition, we can rebox, remove staples, relabel and catalogue, making the accession process quicker and easier for you. If you are looking at taking in a new collection, contact us today to see how we can assist.
